NEW YORK — VF Corp.’s 7 For All Mankind denim brand is ramping up its retail expansion plans, having signed a string of new leases in recent weeks. Over the next nine months the L.A.-based company will open at least six new stores, including two units in Manhattan, and one each in Miami, San Francisco, Honolulu and Malibu, Calif. Currently there are two 7 For All Mankind stores in Los Angeles and Dallas, which bowed this past November.
As part of its retail growth, the company has hired David Corbin as director of store design and visual merchandising, reporting to Aaron Battista, vice-president of retail. Corbin previously founded and operated his own retail design consultancy, 4SquareCreative.
