Looking to expand the retail end of its traditionally wholesale brands, Liz Claiborne Inc. has hired Adam Levy, president of retail and ready-to-wear at Jones Apparel Group Inc., for the new post of president of retail for its partnered brands division.
Levy, who managed 285 retail stores and e-commerce at Jones, will be responsible for overseeing e-commerce and retail for partnered brands, as the $4 billion company restages its Liz Claiborne brand outlet stores, considers opening full-priced Liz Claiborne stores with the Isaac Mizrahi-designed product; tests Kensie retail; adds Kensie e-commerce in 2009, and opens DKNY Jeans family outlets.
