Department store group Marks & Spencer Plc (M&S) is set to expand its Per Una clothing label with the launch of the Per Una Due range for younger women.

The Per Una Due collection, to reach stores in May, will be targeted at women ranging from late teens to early 30s.

M&S hopes it will achieve similar success to other Per Una spin-offs Collezione Italia and Club Carribean.

Per Una Due will initially be available in 65 stores across the UK, with further stores to stock the line from September.
