In 1961, Coach hired Bonnie Cashin, a pioneer of American sportswear, to give the leather house a big push into women’s fashion. A winner of the Coty and Neiman Marcus awards, Cashin was known for designs that were chic and elegant as well as practical and easy to wear, heralding a new freedom in dress for American women. She brought that sensibility to Coach, where she worked until 1974. Her innovations included: pockets, zippers and fun colors; sportswear pieces; numerous accessories beyond leathers, and what would become a house staple: the Duffle.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
