Stuart Vevers is Coach’s New Hire

-------

Stuart VeversCoach has named its new executive creative director and, somewhat unsurprisingly, it’s not Marc Jacobs. Rather, Stuart Vevers, formerly the creative director of Spanish house Loewe, got the gig, replacing Reed Krakoff, who, two months ago, announced that he would be leaving the company in June 2014 to focus on his eponymous collection. “Stuart is recognized as one of the world’s leading accessories designers,” Coach president and chief commercial officer Victor Luis told WWD. “His passion, leadership skills, and broad luxury brand experience, focused on leather goods, uniquely qualify him to lead the next chapter of Coach,” Indeed, Vevers—who will be in charge of all creative aspects of the brand—has a wealth of hit-handbag experience. Before heading to Loewe in 2008, he held positions at Bottega Veneta, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, and Louis Vuitton, each of which have strong accessories ranges. The English designer also won the British Fashion Council’s Accessory Designer of the Year award in 2006 while working as the creative director of Mulberry, a role that he held from 2005 to 2008.
