NEW YORK — Isaac Mizrahi is back in the better sportswear game at department stores.
Xcel Brands Inc., which embarked on a licensing spree for Mizrahi last fall, has signed an exclusive agreement with The Jump Apparel Group here to manufacture and distribute sportswear, dresses and suiting under the Isaac Mizrahi New York brand. The collections, which will be geared to the better market, will be introduced for spring 2013 retailing.
