Coach: Master of Reinvention

NEW YORK, United States — For almost 75 years, Coach has pioneered leather goods and accessories within the accessible luxury space. Founded in 1941 in a factory loft in Soho in Manhattan, the brand has grown from a specialty leatherworker to a publicly traded, global accessories giant.

The brand took hold in the 1960s, when designer Bonnie Cashin introduced handbags in colourful hues, adding attractive hardware and useful touches such as coin pockets, and was reinvented in the late 1990s, when the brand debuted stylish and sophisticated marketing to complement its growing stable of offerings, including footwear and jewellery. Along the way, Coach has made successful inroads abroad, proving particularly popular in Asia.
