British brand Aquascutum will be expanding its territory into the the US come Fall. The company is set to launch a line of separates named the London collection at Saks Fifth Avenue locations in August. Meanwhile, Bergdorf Goodman will carry Aquascutum's vintage collection of coats.
“I think there is a huge desire from the American consumer for us, so it’s a very good time for us to be going in,” said president and chief executive officer at Aquascutum, Kim Winser.
The Aquascutum London line will feature blouses, wool skirts, and silk graphic dresses with pricing around $780. The vintage collection will include designs inspired by Aquascutum’s archives, such as a hot pink wool swing coat priced at $3,940. Steep, but fabulous I'm sure . . .
