NEW YORK — Add Badgley Mischka to the list of designer brands looking for new owners or investment.
Its parent, Escada AG, has put the star eveningwear label into play as part of the continuing review of the German company’s troubled operations. While smoke signals have been coming from Escada for months, as the house made cryptic statements that its ongoing focus would be limited to its core brand, Lawrence C. DeParis, president and chief operating officer of Escada USA, confirmed Friday that it is “entertaining interest in the Badgley Mischka brand with select partners.”
