New York–After launching his eponymous ready-to-wear and accessories line last year, Coach’s president and creative director Reed Krakoff opens his first New York store and an e-commerce site. [wlm_private_Free]
Located at Madison Avenue and 69th Street (the former Miu Miu location), the airy space has 15-foot ceilings and an industrial feel, with lots of gray touches. Antique wood floors add a homey touch. Gray felt-covered furniture was designed by his wife Delphine.
In addition to his apparel, which was an instant hit upon its launch, the store will also sell Reed Krakoff accessories–including footwear, handbags, sunglasses, watches and jewelry.
There is a Reed Krakoff store in Tokyo and one opening in Las Vegas.
To expand even further, the business-savvy designer launched his own website today www.ReedKrakoff.com, which sells all his merchandise and also features lots of behind-the-scenes information such as runway shows and Krakoff’s inspirations.[/wlm_private_Free]
