US lifestyle brand Coach is moving into Jaeger’s London flagship on Regent Street after 80 years occupying the unit. Jaeger and the Crown Estate, who owns the unit, are selling the lease to Coach, which is relocating from a smaller store just down the street. Chief executive of Coach Victor Luis said: “We are delighted to bring Coach and Stuart Weitzman together at this iconic location, while maintaining their unique identities with individual stores and spaces for each brand.”
This move comes at a difficult time for Jaeger. Colin Henry, ex Chief Executive, stepped down last month, followed by several other resignations in the business.
