If there is anyone that can help you get into the holiday spirit its content creator Rickey Thompson. Thompson was tapped by luxury fashion house Coach for its latest holiday campaign. “It’s been amazing, I’ve been working with Coach since last year and honestly, I love them so much,” the influencer tells ESSENCE. “I am so happy to be apart of their family.”
Today, Coach unveils its latest advert for its Swinger Bag featuring cool talent like Thompson and Kim Petras while starring Paris Hilton. Including a throwback cam theme to go along with the 00’s inspired select is a film that pays homage to the noughties and shows the cast staying connected this holiday. “Coach is just so easy to work with and they always treat me well,” exclaimed Rickey. “Anytime I shoot with them, the shoots are so much fun.”
An archival Coach style, the Swinger bag nods to the mini-bag moment of the early aughts. Reintroduced in Glovetannned leather and the house’s iconic Signature, it reflects Creative Director Stuart Vevers’ vision of heritage reimagined for now and touches on the brand’s nostalgic hold on new age shoppers.”When I was younger my mom, grandma, aunt loved Coach bags. A Coach bag was the bag,” says Thompson. “So now fast forward to working with them, I think that is so cool.”
The content creator can be seen posing with his select in a crop top and jeans, a casual moment which he adds is a perfect style for the Swinger Bag. Adjusting the pandemic, Thompson curated this project from his home, and details how he is preparing to go into other lockdown while maintaining work. “The pandemic is getting crazier and crazier and LA is going back into lockdown, so that rough. Other than that, I am healthy, my family is healthy and my friends are healthy. Your health is so important right now,” Thompson concludes
