Coach opens new flagship store at 685 Fifth Avenue

Coach has opened its newest flagship at 685 Fifth Avenue in one of the world’s most prestigious shopping districts.

Timed to coincide with the brand’s 75th anniversary year, the 20,000 s/f space was designed by executive creative director Stuart Vevers in partnership with William Sofield, designer and president of Studio Sofield.

The interior features a blackened steel and concrete staircase, as well as a glass enclosed, vintage inspired elevator.

Throughout the three-level flagship is a mix of eclectic and bespoke furniture and objects, custom-designed cabinetry, proprietary carpets and fine millwork.

There is a mechanized conveyor belt installed with a rotation of Coach products.

The center atrium houses a 12-foot sculpture of Coach’s dinosaur, Rexy, designed by renowned artist Billie Achilleos, and constructed entirely from Coach bags and proprietary hardware.

A monumental contemporary sculpture, Scribing the Void, created by Brooklyn artist Kurt Steger traces the surface of iconic rock formations in Central Park, and is a nod to Coach’s New York City roots.

The flagship features women’s and men’s collections including bags, small leather goods, footwear, and ready-to-wear, in addition to offering a full range of customization and leather services.

The company is also launching Made to Order Rogue, which allows customers to create a bespoke Rogue bag.

And the Coach House Workshop – the first of its kind – offers expanded leather and craftsmanship services, including special monogramming and exclusive vintage product, featuring a resident master craftsman in the New York Workshop at Coach’s headquarters.
