Coach Inc.’s president and executive creative director Reed Krakoff outearned his boss, chairman and chief executive officer Lew Frankfort, by a better than two-to-one margin last year.
In a proxy statement filed on Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Frankfort’s total compensation for the fiscal year ended June 28 was listed as $9.7 million, a 2.4 percent dip from $9.9 million a year ago. But Krakoff, his pay package enriched by a bonus for signing a new contract, earned $22.4 million in total compensation, up from $18 million in 2007.
Frankfort’s compensation includes a base salary of $1.2 million, a performance bonus of $1.6 million and $346,156 in other compensation. Frankfort also received stock awards valued at $1.1 million and stock options worth $5.4 million.
Krakoff’s compensation package includes a base salary of $2.3 million, a performance bonus of $4.1 million and other compensation of $607,529. He also received stock awards valued at $784,778 and stock options worth $9.5 million.
In addition, pursuant to his employment agreement, Krakoff received a contractual bonus per his employment agreement of an additional $5 million, up from $1.5 million in 2007. That contractual bonus consists of a $1.5 million payment plus an additional $3.5 million for agreeing to extend his contract for another three years. The extension of his employment agreement was entered into by Krakoff and Coach on March 11, according to the proxy.
Last year, Coach’s net income grew 18 percent to $783 million while revenues rose 21.8 percent to $3.18 billion. Fourth-quarter profits picked up even more. Net income was up 32.9 percent to $213 million and sales rose 19.8 percent to $781.5 million.

“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
