Coach Inc. (COH) CEO Victor Luis is not intimidated by Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) and he surely does not view retail as dead.

At least that's what Luis told TheStreet in an interview on Tuesday, Aug. 15, after the luxury handbag and accessories maker reported second-quarter earnings of 50 cents a share on revenue of $1.13 billion, compared to Wall Street's estimates for earnings of 49 cents a share on $1.51 billion in revenue. The company's same-store sales rose 4% in North America.

Shares of Coach slipped nearly 10% in afternoon trading as Wall Street was likely looking for more optimism with guidance now that newly-acquired Kate Spade & Co. will be in the mix. Coach sees full year earnings of $2.35 to $2.40 a share, an increase of about 10% to 12% from the prior year. Analysts were looking for $2.49 a share.

Coach closed on its $2.3 billion acquisition of Kate Spade in July.

Here's a condensed and edited version of our interview with Luis.
