“‘In My Tabby’ is a continuation of our journey to tell stories and connect emotionally with our audiences through the Courage to Be Real, our brand purpose focused on inspiring courageous self-expression and exploring all of who you are,” said Sandeep Seth, Coach Global Chief Marketing Officer and North America President.
“Today, we are only at the start of this journey, aiming to disrupt the traditional approach of putting the brand at the center of everything, instead shifting our focus to the consumer. Our goal is to create an emotional connection with Coach’s consumers through storytelling rooted in insights about their lives—and creating human experiences at every touchpoint across channels.”
Coach’s Tabby bag was core to the brand’s March 2023 presentation at Decentraland’s Metaverse Fashion Week, where fans were able to collect their own metaverse-friendly Tabby bags.
In the same spirit of personalization, Coach will soon debut a “Made to Order Tabby” service that allows customers to create their own Tabby, selecting from a variety of leathers, hardware, and colors to bring their dream bag to life.
