Nautica Apparel Inc., has signed a licensing deal with Bespoke Fashion LLC for the manufacture and distribution of neckwear.
The first season will be for spring and the deal covers the U.S. and Canada. The collection will be carried in department stores including Macy’s, Belk and The Bay, and will feature seasonal trends and fabrications including mixed linen and cotton blends. The ties will retail for $55.
The license had previously been held by PVH Corp. but recently expired, a Nautica spokeswoman said.
“We are happy to announce our collaboration with Bespoke Fashion for the Nautica neckwear license. The Bespoke management team brings with it competencies in product development and distribution which are aligned with the go-forward positioning of the Nautica brand,” said Maria Vicari, president of global licensing for the Nautica brand.
