Coca-Cola, one of the world's leading brands, is to expand from soft drinks into denim, with plans to launch its jeans range in continental Europe at the end of this year, the Independent on Sunday reported. Coca-Cola Wear, the drinks company's clothing arm, first launched a casual range in the UK and Ireland in 1999. The range, including jeans, T-shirts and sweatshirts, is now sold at selected Top Shop and Debenhams stores, and through other retailers.
