HONG KONG — When in Hong Kong, do as the New Yorkers do. Such was the theme as Coach celebrated the opening of its sprawling new flagship here. The store is a tribute to prewar Manhattan apartments and the parties that marked its opening maintained the motif.
On the eve of the opening last Thursday, celebrations started with a private dinner on the store's second level. Coach Inc. creative director Reed Krakoff and chairman and chief executive officer Lew Frankfort welcomed guests, including Lane Crawford president Jennifer Woo, Shanghai Tang designer Joanna Ooi and socialite Mira Yeh, who told Frankfort the limited edition ostrich Perry Pleats bag would be the store's bestseller.
