Oct 25 (Reuters) - Coach Inc reported a higher-than-expected first-quarter profit as sales of its upscale handbags, wallets and accessories rose in North America despite the rocky economy and continued to grow in China.

The company said it was ready "for another excellent holiday season." Sales at stores open at least a year rose 9.2 percent in North America and were up by a double-digit percentage in China. Business in Japan also continued to improve after being hurt earlier this year by natural and nuclear disasters.
