Coach plans to open a new Fifth Avenue flagship, timed to coincide with the brand’s 75th anniversary, at 685 Fifth Avenue in New York.
The 20,000-square-foot space will be dedicated to the Coach brand and will be designed by Stuart Vevers, executive creative director, in partnership with William Sofield, designer and president of Studio Sofield.
“Our intention is to create a true ‘Coach House,’ celebrating Coach’s heritage and history of craftsmanship,” said Victor Luis, chief executive officer of Coach. The store will feature the women’s and men’s Collections including bags, small leather goods, footwear and ready-to-wear, in addition to having a separate adjacent Stuart Weitzman flagship store.
The three-level flagship, at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 54th Street, will have a mix of custom-designed cabinetry with vintage and bespoke furniture and objects. The store is planned to open in the fall.
