Angelika Kammann has joined Karoo as designer, replacing Mark Eisen, who had designed the contemporary knitwear line since its 2005 launch.
The decision to split with Eisen was made because he is in South Africa, which became a hindrance to the design process for New York-based Karoo. Eisen also designs Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s higher-priced George collection.
