NEW YORK — Gant will begin wholesaling a men’s collection designed in partnership with influential retailer Jeffrey Kalinsky, founder of the trendy Jeffrey stores in New York and Atlanta as well as senior vice-president and director of designer merchandising at Nordstrom. Gant has sold an upscale, limited-edition collection exclusively at Jeffrey for the past two years, but the fall ’08 season is the first time that other U.S. retailers will be able to buy the line.
“Collaborating with one of the finest retail experts in the world has been a wonderful experience these last few years. Jeffrey’s exceptional taste level has allowed us to realize a new direction for the brand—one that honors where we came from while moving into the 21st century,” said Ari Hoffman, president and CEO of Gant USA.
