NEW YORK — The deal has been signed and Coogi, the brand known for its signature multicolor knits, is ready for an active year ahead under its new owners.
Last month, the 33-year-old label was purchased by Norman and Bruce Weisfeld, investors in Fubu and Willie Esco, and Jimmy Khezrie, owner of the Jimmy Jazz retail chain. Now, the team of owners has big plans for the label that’s found a place among the urban crowd.
