Timed for the 75th anniversary of luxe accessories brand Coach, the company is opening its first flagship store in Paris. It’s located in one of the city’s most upscale shopping districts at 372-374 Rue Saint-Honoré .
The 6,500-sqaure-foot two-story space, designed by creative director Stuart Vevers in partnership with William Sofield, designer and president of Studio Sofield, features a New York city vibe and includes a VIP shopping salon and monogram shop. A central blackened steel and mahogany staircase is the focal point, inviting customers in. Warm lighting, hand tufted carpets and detailed mill work accent each room. Throughout the store is a mix of custom-designed cabinetry with vintage and bespoke furniture and objects.
The store will feature a collection of both men’s and women’s product including ready-to-wear, shoes, sun wear, jewelry, watches and fragrances.
