NEW YORK — Perry Ellis has been off the women’s sportswear map for some time, but it’s about to be a landmark again.
Public Clothing Co., the newest group to hold the license, and parent Perry Ellis International are engaged in a multimillion-dollar relaunch of the iconic American sportswear brand, set to debut under the signature label this spring with the goal of entering about 300 to 350 specialty and department store doors. For the spring fashion show, about one-third of the show, set for Sept. 18 at the New York Public Library’s Celeste Bartos Forum, will be devoted to the new women’s sportswear line.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
