Dorfman Pacific has signed a licensing deal with Stetson for dress and cloth caps, outdoor and golf headwear in men’s and unisex styling as well as children’s in North America. The new collection will debut in August at WWDMAGIC and Project. An expanded agreement, covering Japan, Asia and Oceana (Australia/New Zealand) includes all fabrics, and both dress and Western hats.
“For an American hat manufacturer, nothing could be more viscerally thrilling, or a greater cause for pride, than to take responsibility for Stetson—one of, quite possibly the most authentic and legendary of all American brands,” said Douglas Highsmith, president and chief executive officer of the Stockton, Calif.-based Dorfman Pacific. “We confidently expect ... Stetson will become one of our largest brands.”
Dorfman Pacific also has licenses for Tommy Bahama, Woolrich, Panama Jack, Blue Chair Bay by Kenny Chesney, John Deere and others. It is the largest in-stock headwear company in the world.
Stetson was founded by John B. Stetson in 1865 and is considered to be perhaps the quintessential American headwear brand.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
