Coach managed to outpace analysts expectations in the latest period, however a more downbeat forecast sparked a selloff of the company's shares.
Shares of the retailer dropped 6 percent in premarket trading Tuesday.
Coach is projecting full-year fiscal 2018 earnings per share between $2.35 and $2.40, below Thomson Reuters expectations of $2.49 per share. The company also projected softer-than-expected fiscal year 2018 revenue of $5.8 billion to $5.9 billion, below estimates of $6 billion in revenue.
Net income rose to $152 million, or 53 cents per share, from $82 million, or 29 cents per share, in the comparable quarter last year. Excluding items, Coach earned 50 cents per share, outpacing analysts' expectations of 49 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters.

"Kate Spade's customers are millennials and we all know millennials are fickle," Konik wrote in a note.
"To assume Kate Spade revenues will meet goals and to assume the standing of the Kate Spade brand will stay very strong for the next few years ia tough calls,
The fashion company was rumored to be pursuing Jimmy Choo before rival Michael Kors signed a deal to buy the high-end shoemaker for $1.2 billion.
In May, retail analyst Simeon Siegel of Nomura Instinet called Coach's "shrinking to grow" plan one of the few success stories in the industry. He said the company's better-than-expected third-quarter earnings were fueled by Coach's efforts to cut back on discount and promotions in U.S. stores.
