Ellen DeGeneres Talks Plans for Men’s Wear and Furniture for ED Collection

Ellen DeGeneres was very much having a when-worlds-collide moment Thursday night at Bergdorf Goodman as fans bought copies of her new book “Home” and fashion types pieced through her ED collection.

During the course of the night, which included a private dinner, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake and Pharrell Williams were among the other Ellen admirers who filed through the 57th Street store. Appropriately, Friday Pink debuted a new theme song on DeGeneres’ talk show — “Today’s the Day.”

This story first appeared in the September 12, 2015 issue of WWD.  Subscribe Today.

“It’s like a brand new year that I’m kicking into because I’ve been a comedian, I’ve been an actress. I’m a talk show host — that’s easy for me. I can do that in my sleep. This is a whole new challenge. It’s exciting and I’m learning a lot.” DeGeneres said. “As far as managing my time, I love clothing, and I love design, and I love houses. And I love fashion. So it’s not really an effort, it’s more fun.”

Standing beside her wife Portia de Rossi, DeGeneres said getting into fashion was even more of an undertaking than expected. “For sure, because it’s also going to be much bigger than I ever imagined. We just did this deal with Camuto [Group] for shoes, we’re going to do men’s wear and we’re going to go into furniture,” the Emmy winner said. “I kind of want to do anything lifestyle.”

Translation? That means DeGeneres is taking lots of meetings, reviewing products, tweaking, doing vision boards and photographing “everything that I’m attracted to.” Her business partner Chris Burch could attest to that, having recently spent five days with DeGeneres on a shopping/exploratory tour of Paris. “Ellen is like literally the most on-it, exciting, passionate person in every category. Her taste level, creativity, desires and curiosity are awesome. She is always sending pictures. She always wants to do a tweak, a twist to a shoe or clothing but it’s got to be true to who she is. She and Marisa [Gardini] talk every day. When I got into business with her, I knew how great she was. But I had no idea the attention and the creativity she would bring to this thing.”

Apparently, DeGeneres’ tirelessness is inherent. “I don’t have an off button any way, so it’s hard for me to switch off anything — no matter what. I’m always lying in bed going, ‘Uh, I should have done this or I need to do that.’” she said. ” It’s really hard for me to kind of shut down. So that works in my favor, I guess, or at some point it may work against me. But right now it’s just who I am.”

King could relate given her two main gigs — “CBS This Morning” host and O Magazine editor at large. “I’ve been up since 3:30 this morning. That’s my God-dreadful schedule and I’m just trying to stay in the upright position,” she said. “I came to pay my respects and then I’m going. I really try to be home by nine [p.m.], but I’m not going to make that tonight.”

The Coach brand stands for authenticity, innovation, and relevance. We grew organically from the product, always staying true to these key brand equities.

Started in 1941 as a family-run workshop in New York City, we were pioneers in the leather goods and accessories space, establishing ourselves as the original American house of leather during the second half of the 20th Century.

We went on to define “accessible luxury” for a generation. Beginning in North America, Coach delivered an alternative to traditional luxury. Then, we expanded beyond our home market, becoming the first American company in our category to bring international relevance to an American leather goods brand.

Today, Coach is available on five continents in over 1,000 directly-operated stores worldwide and many more in collaboration with our global wholesale and distributor partners.

Now, we’re building on our brand strengths with a vision:


It’s an ambitious plan for our future—one that we are uniquely suited to—and an extraordinary opportunity to make luxury more meaningful, liberating, inviting, and approachable for those who desire more than status.

It’s a way to celebrate and honor individuality, blending our history and heritage with design and fashion relevance, to present a clear and compelling expression of the Coach Woman and the Coach Man across the brand and around the world.

As we look forward to celebrating our 75th anniversary, we remain incredibly proud of Coach: Our business, brand, culture, and people. And today, the Coach name is synonymous with effortless New York style, an integral part of the American luxury landscape and the lives of countless Coach customers around the world.

We remain inspired by our rich heritage, and we’re excited for the endless opportunities that lay ahead for Coach!

Our Loyal & Involved Consumer
Coach consumers have a strong emotional connection with our brand. Part of our everyday mission is to cultivate consumer relationships by strengthening this emotional connection.

Multi-Channel Global Distribution Model

Innovation With A Customer-centric Focus
We listen to our customers through rigorous research and strong consumer orientation. We learn about them wherever Coach is sold around the world, and work to anticipate changing needs by keeping our product assortment fresh and compelling.

Fairmont: A flagship in the heart of L.A.

It was on Californian land that the Fairmont brand first saw the light of day, in 1907. Over a century later it wanted to reaffirm its origins by taking the reins once more at an iconic Los Angeles hotel: the Century Plaza. Soon to be totally transformed by a particularly ambitious renovation program, this address promises to be a shining example in the heart of the City of Angels.

The Century Plaza’s fame has never ceased to grow ever since it opened in 1966. Generations of celebrities, such as Hollywood actors, famous foreign families and US Presidents have made this place an iconic address.

The hotel has an unassailable reputation, through its perfect location in this luxurious district of the city, at the intersection between Avenue of the Stars and Constellation Boulevard, just near Beverly Hills!

 “Fairmont is honored to become the manager of the historic Century Plaza, and along with Michael Rosenfeld and the entire team at Next Century Associates, we look forward to the rebirth of this iconic property. The brand, after more than a century of building an international portfolio of award-winning properties, we are thrilled to return to our roots and expand our presence in the Southern California region. Fairmont Century Plaza is an important project, not just for the city and region, but for our globally-recognized brand as well.Kevin Fried, Chief Operating Officer, North & Central America, AccorHotels

It is a huge project, for which the teams have surrounded themselves with world-renowned professionals, such as the architects Minoru Yamasaki, Pei Cobb Freed, Gensler and Marmol Radzinger as well as the design consultants Yabu Pushelberg.

The opening of this hotel marks a new stage in the Group’s growth strategy, particularly in the luxury segment and the American market.
