Founded in: 1941
Headquarters (HQ): New York, USA
Coach is a global fashion house founded in New York in 1941. Inspired by the vision of Creative Director Stuart Vevers and the inclusive and courageous spirit of our hometown, we make beautiful things, crafted to last—for you to be yourself in.
We believe in crafting beautiful things that you can be yourself in. Since 1941, inspired by the spirit of our hometown, New York City, we’ve built a legacy of craft and a community that champions the courage to live authentically.
Today, the same way we care about every stitch that goes into our product, we care about the impact we have on people, communities and the planet. Everything we make, we craft to last with the belief that better-made things create a better made future for all.
Coach began with a dream to hand-craft leather into beautiful, clever, practical things. Founded in New York in 1941 by six artisans, the house grew under the vision of Lillian and Miles Cahn to become the Original American House of Leather.
Then came Bonnie Cashin: hired by Miles Cahn in 1962 to be Coach’s first lead designer. With Bonnie’s fearless vision of color, proportion and quirk—and her love of doing—Coach transformed into the perfect reflection of modern freedom and equality, the attitude of 60s New York.
In the decades that followed, Coach opened its first store on Madison Avenue and transformed from a family-run leathergoods company into a fashion house known around the world for its distinct attitude and lifestyle collections inspired by New York.
Today, as in 1941, we are shaped by our unique story—and committed, in everything we do, to celebrating craft, our hometown and the optimism of authentic American style.
