Joining The Ride: Coach has named Ruth Harrison general manager, Coach Stores Ltd., the company’s 50-50 joint venture with British men’s wear label Hackett that will roll out the accessories brand in the U.K. and continental Europe. Harrison, a former beauty industry executive who joins this month, will be based in London and report directly to Ian Bickley, president, Coach International.

Harrison has been charged with raising brand awareness and developing plans for a multichannel business in the U.K., Spain, Portugal and Ireland that will include flagships, retail stores and shop-in-shops. Coach plans to open stores in Europe starting this spring with a 3,000-square-foot shop at the Westfield White City mall in west London. Over the summer, Coach will unveil a 5,100-square-foot flagship — its first in Europe — on New Bond Street in London. Those stores, which will stock men’s and women’s collections, will be the first of 10 to 15 Coach locations in the U.K. within the next three years.
