Selena Gomez and Coach have been having a bit of a love affair this year. First the pop singer wowed us at the Met Gala with a stunning custom pale pink Coach gown, and then Gomez partnered with the brands national charity partner Step Up. The 'Fetish' singer is also the face of Coach's A/W'17 campaign. Now the duo have taken their love affair to the next level, with the star announcing on Instagram today that she has designed an exclusive bag for Coach.

The 'Selena Grace' bag is co-designed by Gomez and Coach creative director Stuart Vevers. The double-handled bag, pictured here in 'Selena Red,' also comes in two other colours, 'Selena Black Cherry' and 'Selena White.' The hangtag on the bag features Gomez's signature alongside a personal message: "To be you is to be strong." The base of the bag also features a quote written in Gomez's handwriting: "Love yourself first."

The quotes can be taken as an homage to Gomez's struggle with mental health and post-traumatic stress these past few years.  The pop singer openly discussed her struggle in her acceptance speech at the American Music Awards: "I think it's safe to say that most of you know a lot of my life whether I liked it or not, and I had to stop, cause I had everything, and I was absolutely broken inside. And I kept it all together to where I never let you down, but I kept it too much together where I let myself down." The heartfelt speech was concluded with a final statement from the star: "If you are broken, you don't have to stay broken."

The Coach x Selena Gomez collection will be available in Coach stores worldwide from September 1.
