Lower profits at Coach Inc. last year took a toll on the pay packages of Lew Frankfort and Reed Krakoff.
Frankfort, chairman and chief executive officer, saw his compensation slip 22.1 percent to $7.5 million for the fiscal year ended June 27, while Krakoff’s pay package fell 19.9 percent to $17.9 million. Krakoff is president and executive creative director of the New York-based accessories firm. Their salaries increased to $1.2 million and $2.5 million, respectively.
Neither executive qualified for nonequity incentive plan compensation, whereas in 2008, Frankfort qualified for $1.6 million and Krakoff for $4.1 million. Krakoff received a $4.6 million bonus not related to performance, down from $5 million the prior year, as stipulated in his contract. Frankfort received none.
Stock and option awards totaled $5.9 million for Frankfort, down from $6.5 million during the prior year, and $10.1 million for Krakoff, down from $10.3 million in fiscal 2008. Because of vesting schedules and falling stock prices, stock and option awards weren’t necessarily realized.
The figures were contained in the definitive proxy Coach filed Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission. It stated that officers’ salaries will be frozen in fiscal 2010 and that Krakoff had declined the 5 percent salary hike for the current year guaranteed in his contract.
Coach’s net income from continuing operations last year fell 20.4 percent to $623.4 million as sales rose 1.6 percent to $3.23 billion.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
