Meet the new successor. Reed Krakoff's successor as creative director of Coach has just been announced, and the prestigious position goes to Stuart Vevers (who was formerly the creative mastermind behind Loewe) reports WWD. While Krakoff works on his eponymous label, Vevers will be working on Coach's women's and men's designs, brand imagery, and store environments. Before Loewe, he worked at Mulberry (as creative director), Calvin Klein, Bottega Veneta, Givenchy, and Louis Vuitton. He even won the British Council’s Accessory Designer of the Year award in 2006.
"Coach is an exceptional brand and company that I’ve long admired for its rich heritage," Vevers told WWD. "I am excited to drive Coach’s next stage of transformation."
Vevers' start date is TBD. We wish him the best of luck in his new role!
