PARIS, Aug 23, 2010 / FW/ — Famed American label Coach has arrived in Paris, making its homestead at the Printemps Haussman.
Known for its leather goods which had become a byword in American craftsmanship since it was founded 69 years ago, Coach brings to Paris its distinctive style and quintessential American spirit.
In 1941, in a Manhattan loft, Coach began as a family-run workshop with six artisans handcrafting a collection of small leather goods using skills handed down from generation to generation. Originally called Manhattan Leather Bags, the name was changed to Coach during the 1960s when the company began making women’s purses.
Since its founding, discerning consumers recognized the unique nature of Coach craftsmanship and as the label’s fame grew, so does its reputation, finally emerging as America’s preeminent designer, producer, and marketer of fine accessories and gifts for women and men including handbags, women’s and men’s small leathergoods, business cases, weekend and travel accessories, outerwear, scarves, jewelry, fragrance and related accessories.
