Coach Sales In North America Plummet As Market Share Erodes

Designer Tiffany Lerman Launches Pattern LA, A New Collection of Handbags and Totes

Coach’s overall revenue fell 5.6 percent to $1.42 billion, in the second quarter, while net income dropped to $297.4 million, or $1.06 per share, from $352.8 million, or $1.23 per share, a year earlier. Analysts on average had expected earnings of $1.11 per share on revenue of $1.48 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. REBALANCING ACT To win back shoppers, the 73-year-old company is trying to offer more footwear and fashion to become a lifestyle brand. Coach will be presenting a collection at New York Fashion Week next month for the first time. Chief Executive Victor Luis, who took the reins this month from longtime CEO Lew Frankfort, told Reuters that Coach is “rebalancing” its merchandise selection and increasing its offerings of handbags priced $400 or more. After the 2008-09 recession, Coach had ramped up its selection of lower-price handbags.
