INSPIRED BY THE URBAN FLAIR OF NEW YORK
It is the year 1941. In a small craft workshop in the heart of Manhattan, a typical American icon that fires the imagination of six master craftsmen. Inspired by the unique patina and incredibly smooth texture of a worn baseball glove, they developed the vision of using leather in a completely revolutionary way, creating a new kind of presentation. With their skill and traditional techniques handed down for generations, they create a new icon. COACH, the "American House of Leather", is born. From its humble beginnings as a small family business that established itself through first-vclass craftsmanship and thus made a name for itself, the house has developed into an internationally leading lifestyle and luxury brand. A form of luxury that COACH redefines with its authenticity and innovative power and makes it accessible to an entire generation. The classic, minimalist style with a distinct New York spirit is a new lifestyle alternative to the traditional.
With the combination of quality, function and design, COACH not only conquers the American market, but also advances to become the first American leather brand with international relevance.
The famous "Horse and Carriage" motif - the classic New York horse-drawn carriage - is the brand logo of the label since 1950 and stands for traditional craftsmanship from the Big Apple worldwide. The legendary Turnlock, a screw cap created in 1964 by the designer, is another unique design element of the brand. And - it's not a COACH bag without a COACH tag - the iconic leather pendant is a must for every handbag. Today, COACH is synonymous worldwide with a casual New York lifestyle, the collections of Creative Director Stuart Vevers are casual, personal and have that modern downtown attitude that makes New York so unique. That carefree yet extremely driving American spirit that makes COACH so unique.
The company now employs 17.000 people at its headquarters and more than 1.000 stores and sales units worldwide. The path to the future is marked by a new, contemporary vision: to become the company that redefines modern luxury worldwide. The first step is the launch of its own perfume.
