Since selling a majority stake in the Marc Ecko brands to Iconix Brand Group last October after hitting a financial wall, Marc Ecko Enterprises has signed a raft of new licenses and refocused its businesses as it operates on a more secure foundation.
Since the Iconix deal, Ecko has inked 13 new licenses, bringing the total license count to 22, downsized its pricy corporate headquarters and licensed out the noncore Zoo York business. In addition, the company has ramped up retail operations as it works to navigate a difficult wholesale climate that has seen the closure of many independent specialty retailers in the streetwear zone.
