Reed Krakoff to leave Coach to focus on his own line

Apr '13
After helming the famous luxury leather goods label Coach for sixteen long years, the talented American fashion designer Reed Krakoff has decided to go solo.
 
The 49-year-old designer, who is currently the president and creative director of the New York-based brand, is stepping down in June 2014 (when his contract with the company will expire) to concentrate solely on his own eponymous label, reported WWD.
 
Krakoff’s popularity as a designer shot overnight after dressing up Michelle Obama for several occasions, including the president's swearing-in ceremony, Vogue’s cover shoot and the official White House portrait.
 
Honoured with the prestigious CFDA Accessory Designer title for three times, Reed Krakoff has served as the Vice-President of CFDA from 2006 to 2010. 
 
Krakoff’s eponymous brand specializes in a full line of innovative ready-to-wear clothing and accessories.
