LOS ANGELES — Kentucky Denim Co. is returning to the women’s premium denim market for the holiday season under new ownership and a focus on vintage Americana styling.
The Los Angeles-based label was launched as a men’s jeans line almost two years ago. Hartmarx Corp., maker of premium denim and contemporary sportswear, acquired parent company Monarchy LLC for $12 million in August 2007. The Kentucky Denim label was then acquired by Herzl Talasazan, who had been an investor in Monarchy.
