Kellwood Co. said Wednesday it plans to develop an Izod swimwear collection under a licensing agreement with Phillips-Van Heusen. Featuring Izod’s signature stretch pique fabric, the collection will include bikinis, tankinis and maillots, as well as coordinating cover-ups, skirts and sarongs. The line will be designed to look “sporty chic,” Kellwood said, using knit fabrics and vibrant colors. The swimwear collection is being developed and produced by the swim division of Kellwood’s Intimate Apparel unit. Kellwood is producing Izod women’s sportswear for PVH, set to hit stores in November, as reported. The swim line will be introduced at the July Miami swimwear show for holiday retailing at department and specialty stores.
