ABOUT COACH

THE ORIGINAL AMERICAN
HOUSE OF LEATHER


In 1941, Coach was founded as a small, family-run workshop in a Manhattan loft. Six artisans set out with a simple goal: to make beautiful, functional items in modern shapes and the finest leathers.
75 years later, Coach has transformed into a global brand with over 950 directly operated locations around the world. Our product offerings include bags, small leather goods, ready-to-wear, outerwear, shoes, fragrance, and accessories.
We represent a tradition of quality and leather craft and remain true to our heritage with a new vision of Modern Luxury.
Modern Luxury at Coach is about redefining luxury for the modern age, making it inviting, approachable, and liberating. It goes beyond names and logos to honor individuality and personal style. It looks confident and authentic.
Coach’s collections for men and women offer our customers a meaningful way to express their personal style. They reflect the spirit and eclecticism of New York—the city we’ve always called home.

ABOUT STUART VEVERS
Born in England and trained in Europe, Executive Creative Director Stuart Vevers brought his extensive expertise in leather and a new design direction to Coach in 2013, leading all creative aspects of the Coach brand, including Women’s and Men’s product design, brand imagery, and store environments.
Vevers debuted Coach’s first ready-to-wear collection to critical acclaim during New York Fashion Week in early 2014. Inspired by a journey across America that began and ended in New York City, his Fall 2014 Collection captured the spirit of the new Coach Girl: effortless and authentic, with a lightness of spirit. Vevers’ full expression of the Coach Guy debuted in Fall 2015 with a complete collection of men’s ready-to-wear and an expanded range of bags and shoes.
Vevers’ lifestyle collections for women and men are effortless and personal, with a downtown attitude that modernizes the heritage of our brand. As Coach continues its global expansion with new stores in London, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, Sydney and Shanghai, Vevers is sharing his vision of modern New York style with the world.
Recognized as one of the world’s leading accessories designers, Stuart joined Coach from Loewe, where he held the role of Creative Director. Prior to Loewe, he was Creative Director of Mulberry from 2005 to 2008.
In 2017 Stuart won the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Accessory Designer of the Year award.. Stuart graduated from the University of Westminster in London, England.
Personal Perspectives…
“Coach at its core has a really different point of view, and I think that comes from starting in New York. It feels like a modern way of approaching luxury, and that was very appealing to me.
There’s something about New York style that’s just like the city itself. It’s bold and it’s spontaneous and it gives this feeling of energy and endless possibilities. But at the same time, the style is quite relaxed and understated; there’s a functionality in how things are.
It’s a spirit that I relate to, one that played an important role in my decision to join Coach. And I think that spirit speaks to the type of talent we look to attract and ultimately, the people who join us at Coach.
I think that the home of a brand ends up being so much a part of its soul. I wanted to rediscover Coach in a new way. I wanted something that was about authenticity.
Given that Coach has long been part of the landscape of American fashion in such a significant way, I listen, explore, research, think, but then I always have to go with my instinct. That’s really important for me: Knowing where we came from but then really using my instinct as a designer about what feels right for Coach today and for the future.”
–Stuart Vevers

THE COACH
FOUNDATION


The Coach Foundation brings Coach’s philanthropic initiatives to life. Launched in 2008, we have to date granted more than $40 million to charities supporting women’s health, education for children in under-served communities, public parks and cultural programs in New York City, and disaster relief around the world.
COACH X Step Up
As a brand that has always designed for confident women, we feel strongly about investing in a new generation of girls. In our search to find a like-minded partner, we found the perfect match in Step Up.
Step Up is a nonprofit organization offering young women the support, confidence and connections to fulfill their potential. Over the next three years, we will donate $3 million to Step Up to help expand its programming in under-resourced urban communities.
