Apparel group Industria de Diseno Textil SA (Inditex) is preparing to launch a range of maternity wear, the Cinco Dias newspaper has reported.

According to the newspaper, the retailer's designers are already working on the collection.

However, it said Inditex management had yet to decide whether to distribute the new range through its women's fashion chain Zara or its children's wear outlets Kiddy's Class.
