Popular American brand Coach is not planning to open its first global flagship store in Central until this summer, but they are still going to throw a big party on Friday to celebrate the opening way, way, way in advance. Its local proprietor, the ImagineX Group, just informed us they are hosting a pre-party at the Halo club for the shop, which will be in the heart of Queen's Road Central. Furthermore, they are flying over Coach's chief executive, Lew Frankfort, president and creative director Reed Krakoff and all-American actress Mandy Moore (left) for the bash. Of course, a bunch of local regulars like Edison Chen Koon-hei, Miriam Yeung chin-wah and Amanda Strang have all confirmed they will show up, too - no doubt, for a fee and a big swag bag. It all sounds very swank, but we're still trying to figure out how exactly our future 'global flagship store' differs from any other of their large shops in New York, Paris or Tokyo.
