As might be expected from a designer of expertly cut dresses and head-turning pumps, Reed Krakoff has outfitted his Manhattan office with intriguing silhouettes. The longtime president and executive creative director of Coach—who launched an independent namesake fashion label in 2010—spends his hours amid classic French furnishings, avant-garde contemporary design, and eye-catching works of art.
