Coach is set to launch a ready-to-wear collection! As you know, the brand has previously focused on their luxury handbag collection; however, due to an ever evolving marketplace, they’re aiming to remain competitive. “The reality is that the marketplace has shifted. We’re responding transformationally to take advantage of the opportunity. It’s not as if we’re static.”  said chairman and chief executive officer Lew Frankfort. Reed Krakoff, who serves as the brand’s executive creative director also added in a statement, “Instead of designing accessories to fill a need, we’re thinking more about the woman, who she is, where she goes, what is her life like and how does it feel, to move Coach from…where you think of a Coach bag, to now when you think of Coach, you will think of a woman or a man and you think of their lifestyle.” How enthused are you about this news?
