NEW YORK — Marchpole, the British men’s wear manufacturer and owner of the Jean Charles de Castelbajac label, has been placed into administration, the U.K. equivalent of Chapter 11, according to a regulatory announcement from the London Stock Exchange Tuesday.
As reported last week, shares in the company, which holds the license for Emanuel Ungaro men’s wear and which distributes the DKNY Black Label line in North America, Europe, Africa, the South Pacific, Asia and the Middle East, had been suspended pending clarification of the group’s financial position.
At the time, the company had said trading conditions were “extremely difficult” as a result of the deterioration in consumer markets, following the ongoing global financial crisis.
On Tuesday, a Marchpole spokeswoman declined any further comment or clarification on the future of the company.
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
