John Varvatos will be expanding his distribution in Canada through a newly inked deal with Throat Threads Apparel. The brand has been available at a limited number of stores throughout the country, but now will be distributed more broadly, according to Russ Fearon, president and chief executive officer of Throat Threads. “John Varvatos is an iconic contemporary brand in the landscape of American design,” Fearon said. “John Varvatos is a fantastic addition to our portfolio and we are very excited to have the opportunity to expand the brand in the Canadian marketplace.” The distribution deal covers the John Varvatos collection as well as Star USA apparel and footwear. Distribution will begin with the fall season. Throat Threads also distributes Napapijri, Robert Graham, Victorinox by Swiss Army Brands, Ping, Kenneth Cole New York, Nautica and DKNY in Canada.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
