Members Only has signed a licensing deal with iApparel LLC for outerwear and sweaters for men, women and children in the U.S.
The deal encompasses the brand’s Heritage Collection, which includes its signature flight jacket as well as the White Label premium collection.
“This is a strategic decision taken by my partner Ron Malhotra and myself,” said Jaggi Singh, president and chief executive officer of Members Only. “This will enable us to focus on the brand and grow our Members Only family by licensing into other classifications as well.”
He said that Members Only had been producing these classifications in-house, but made a “strategic decision” to “focus more on making Members Only a lifestyle brand,” rather than manufacturing. “IApparel does outerwear well and we thought they would be the right partner.” Singh said the brand is close to signing four to five other licenses for other classifications.
Sammy Catton, president and ceo of iApparel, said, “The iconic jacket is the most famous outerwear piece of all times. It is both retro and timeless, old and new, and is being worn today by the most famous people in the fashion world. The possibilities in building this brand are endless and we look forward to growing this brand to the next level.”
