LOS ANGELES — The Kardashians are eyeing global expansion of their fashion business via Sir Philip Green’s retail empire.
With their licensee, Jupi Corp., and Green’s Arcadia Group, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are launching Kardashian Kollection this fall in 13 countries, stretching from the U.K. to Turkey, Kuwait to Singapore. The line will be offered in some 250 of Dorothy Perkins’ 600 units located throughout the U.K. and on the high-street retailer’s Web site. The department store BHS, which also is owned by Green, will open eight shops-in-shop for it. Franchise stores in Thailand, Israel, Qatar, Malaysia, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Indonesia and the Philippines will round out the retail base.
