Known for his linoleum prints that have impressed the likes of John Derian, Wes Anderson and The New Yorker, artist Hugo Guinness recently collaborated with Coach for the second time on a line of leather goods that bear his signature designs. The Hugo Guinness for Coach collection features the artist's sketches of everyday objects embossed onto fine leather accessories. Guinness cheekily references the function of each piece through his chosen illustration, with power cords on tech pouches, wrenches on tool kits and paper airplanes on planners.

To commemorate the collection, Coach has also released a video in which Guinness muses on his motivation for the prints. "I'm always trying to amuse myself—and others, hopefully—because that inspires me," he says. "We forgive all our friends who make us laugh, don't we?"

To celebrate the limited edition collection Coach is giving away three pieces to Cool Hunting readers.
