Brand licenser Iconix has closed its US$37.5m acquisition of the London Fog brand from London Fog Group.

The company said on 21 August it would buy the brand, whose parent company has been in Chapter 11 bankruptcy since March.

Iconix also announced it has signed a license with children's outerwear producer Amerex for the US.

The firm previously said it has signed a license deal with outerwear maker Herman Kay for London Fog men's and women's outerwear and women's suits in the US.

Chairman and CEO Neil Cole said: "With two leading outerwear makers forming the foundation of our licensing program, we are confident will be able to quickly capitalise on the long and rich heritage of London Fog and build it into a lifestyle brand that appeals to a broad range of consumers."
