Summary note:
At the heart of Coach is its effortless New York style, cutting-edge design, craftsmanship, and authenticity. This volume explores the evolution of this American company, from its beginnings in 1941 in a small loft as a manufacturer of leather goods to its transformation into a revered international fashion and lifestyle brand. Inspired by the pulsating energy of New York City in the 1960s, the company's owners Miles and Lillian Cahn cultivated an entirely new brand that offered not only men's leather goods, but also women's handbags, totes, small leather goods, and other accessories envisioned by Bonnie Cashin. This richly illustrated volume features both recent and archival photography, ranging from product design sketches to iconic advertising campaigns, and imagery of Coach's inspirational references.
