LOS ANGELES — Mike & Chris, a contemporary brand that helped transform the casual hoodie into an edgy fashion item, hopes to weather the recession without sacrificing design through a licensing agreement with Green Mochi LLC.
Effective immediately, the deal allows Mike & Chris co-founder and designer Mike Gonzalez to focus on design. Green Mochi, which holds equal partnerships in contemporary label Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent and A.L.C., the fashion line launched for next spring by celebrity stylist Andrea Lieberman, oversees Mike & Chris’ production, invoices and shipments.
