From one small loft in New York City with just six artisans to a global brand found in over 800 stores worldwide, Coach has come a long way since its founding in 1941. Synonymous with luxury leather goods and Americana-inspired design, the brand began by handcrafting leather accessories using artisanal techniques passed down the generations. The label has expanded since to create scarves, jewelry, watches and a host of accessories in addition to the recently launched ready-to-wear collection, under creative director Stuart Vevers. The label's handcrafted collection of briefcases make for an essential for the modern city woman. Created in luxurious leathers, these briefcases feature handy compartments to store paperwork and laptops in style.
