Coach Announces New Concept
Coach stores are getting a fresh makeover. The accessories brand has hired creative firm Studio Sofield to develop the new retail concept. This is the first retail change initiated by new executive creative director Stuart Vevers, who has also been working on his first full collection for Coach, debuting this fall. “As soon as you start working on the collection, you start thinking about the environment it’s going to be in,” he said. “Linking those becomes super important. It’s really important to have an environment that works with the collection, supports it, and to have somewhere that tells the new story.” The updated look will first be seen at brand’s 3,909-square-foot Rodeo Drive flagship in Beverly Hills and New York City’s Time Warner Center store. The retail makeovers will be completed this fall. In addition, Coach will open a new store in Tokyo as the first new location with the updated concept.
