Xcel Brands has entered into a strategic partnership with Hudson's Bay and Lord & Taylor for three of its brands and an additional exclusive brand targeting Millennials.
Sequential Brands Group has tapped Cobblers Kitchen as the footwear partner for its William Rast label, which re-launched in the U.S. last fall at retailer Lord & Taylor.
Lord & Taylor celebrated the U.S. launch of the William Rast fall 2014 collection with a performance by recording artist Jessie J last week.
Sequential Brands Group’s William Rast apparel brand will make its U.S. debut exclusively at Lord & Taylor this fall.
Hudson’s Bay and Saks are planning to merge in a deal valued at approximately $2.9 billion.
