US casual apparel retailer Aeropostale has signed licensing deals with textile and apparel business Arvind, and PT Mitra Adiperkasa, that will see it expand in Asia, opening stores in India and Indonesia.

Through its deal with Arvind Lifestyle Brands in India, Aeropostale plans to open 50 standalone stores, 150 shop-in-shops in select locations, and e-commerce operations across the country over the next five years, beginning in March 2016.

In Indonesia, the retailer will open 10 to 12 standalone stores over the next five years, with its first store opening in Jakarta in autumn 2016.

"India and Indonesia are two of the most populated countries in the world and see significant opportunities by bringing the Aeropostale brand to these key countries," said Aeropostale CEO Julian Geiger.

"Following the successful launch of our brand in the Philippines and Singapore, we are excited to capitalise on the strong growth prospects in both India and Indonesia. We are totally comfortable partnering with two of the largest and strongest retailers in their respectful regions, Arvind Lifestyle Brands Limited and MAP."
