NEW YORK — Caribbean Joe might sound like the name of a suntan oil, but it’s actually a sportswear line that’s heating up the moderate floors of department stores.
In the year since it hit the retail floor, this casual line with tropical influences has far exceeded what its owners at Apparel Holdings Group, formerly Periscope Inc., projected: first-year sales reached $60 million — about $45 million more than originally planned.

"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)
