TOKYO — The men’s handbag market is becoming increasingly important in Japan — so much so that Coach recently remodeled its store in Tokyo’s Marunouchi district to focus on the category.
One of Coach’s most popular items is the Thompson messenger bag, a classic style often seen on Tokyo’s well-dressed businessmen. It is priced at 59,850 yen, or about $689 at current exchange. Japanese brands such as Aniary and Porter are also cashing in on the trend.
