For the 630-unit Express, it’s a pivotal year as a fleet of outlets unfolds fast; partnerships for international growth materialize, and skirts, leggings and wovens get played up to offset weakness in casual knits and denim.
“There’s always a lot going on at Express. As of the moment, becoming an omnichannel retailer is the key. We are doing this in a very competitive environment and really the priorities have got to be on product,” David Kornberg, president of Express Inc. and the specialty chain’s next chief executive officer, told WWD.
