Loungewear brand Skin is growing its presence as a trendsetter in both the innerwear and ready-to-wear realms.
The company, which was founded by Susan Beischel in 2003, received a multimillion-dollar cash infusion from a group of private investors in 2011, and has since expanded its retail distribution to include major specialty stores, such as Saks Fifth Avenue, and boutiques in Japan, Singapore and London, as well as Net-a-porter. An rtw collection, which has been expanded to include pieces that can be layered and worn with the innerwear, was launched in fall 2013 exclusively at all Barneys New York locations and is now also sold at major specialty stores. The firm recently moved its showroom and offices to 21 West 38th Street in Manhattan.
