Celebrity pets are becoming famous in their own right, and the newest celebrity pet to hit the fashion scene is Lady Gaga’s French Bulldog Miss Asia Kinney. Asia stars in Coach‘s new fall campaign appropriately called “Coach Pups.” Asia adorably models the Edie and Rucksack bags.
Lady Gaga commented: “I am so proud of Miss Asia! She’s a natural in front of the camera, and we’re both so excited that the iconic Steven Meisel shot her for Coach’s pup campaign! I really love getting to watch my best friend be a star.”
Stuart Vevers, Creative Director at Coach comments, “’I’ve never had so much fun on a shoot. The combination of Mr. Meisel and the pups was an extraordinary, surreal, special moment. We wanted to create playful images that make you smile. We were inspired by some images from the Coach archive, which featured Eddie—the dog that starred in the TV series Frasier—to create something joyful, with humor and character. That’s a spirit that’s uniquely at the heart of Coach.”
Additional pups starring in the campaign will be revealed in the days to come, but for now we can admire the beauty of Asia in her pearl necklace and her Coach bags.
