New York City-based IHL Group reports it has signed an exclusive multi-year licensing agreement with the teen apparel brand Aéropostale. The brand is looking to extend into new categories and distribution channels in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada, and as a recognized manufacturer and wholesaler specializing in intimates, sleepwear and legwear in North America, IHL was a natural fit.
The first collection is a Holiday 2018 line featuring bras, sport bras, babydolls, bodysuits and panties made using premium fabrics and details.
“There are many synergies between IHL Group and Aéropostale,” said Ken Ohashi, executive vice president, Lifestyle Brands at ABG, an owner of Aéropostale. “We are excited to be working together to grow the brand and expand distribution with a trendsetting collection of intimates and undergarments.”
“We are thrilled to bring our quality and trend-driven offerings to the Aéropostale fashion conscious teen customers nationwide,” said Sami Souid, president, IHL Group.
