Coach Columbus Circle Location

Luxury lifestyle brand Coach will open a New York City flagship at 685 Fifth Avenue this fall. The store will feature the brand’s entire 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. Coach will also be opening a separate adjacent Stuart Weitzman flagship store, bringing the two brands’ stores to one iconic location.

The three-level 20,000-square-foot store will be designed by executive creative director Stuart Vevers in partnership with William Sofield, designer and president of Studio Sofield. It will include a unique shopping salon and Craftsmanship Bar. An impressive blackened steel and mahogany staircase will be a key element for the store, inviting the customer in and creating a sense of discovery while shopping. Warm lighting, proprietary carpets, fine millwork, and a mix of custom-designed cabinetry with vintage and bespoke furniture and objects will also be found throughout the store.

“We’re especially excited about the expected opening of this prominent New York location, a true House for the Coach brand in this important global fashion capital,” said Andre Cohen, president of North America for Coach. “We’re confident that our new modern luxury store environment, showcasing Coach’s rich heritage and commitment to craftsmanship along with product designed by Stuart Vevers, will be warmly embraced by the discerning New York shopper and international visitors alike.”

Coach currently has numerous New York City locations, including two shops on Madison Avenue and one at the Shops at Columbus Circle.
