Kurt Geiger’s popular Carvela shoe brand is to launch in the US in a deal with department store chain Dillard’s. It will be available through 75 stores across the US exclusively in time for the coming Holiday season.
The Michael Kors brand has announced its intention to make two-thirds of the staff at its French HQ redundant, a plan which, FashionNetwork.com has learnt, was validated by French labor authority Direccte on May 2.
Kurt Geiger is to open its first full-line store in Ireland at Dundrum Town Centre. It already has a boutique in Ireland’s key outlet mall Kildare Village, but the latest announcement marks another major step forward.
