US apparel company Phillips-Van Heusen (PVH) Corporation has agreed a license deal  for Ram Pacific to market and distribute its Izod brand in Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

The initial term of the license agreement runs until December 2015 and provides for a renewal at PVH's option.

Collections will include men's, boys', women's and girls' apparel and accessories, through department stores, Izod retail stores, and specialty stores.

The first Izod shop-in-shop opened at the Takashimaya department store on Orchard Road in Singapore in April 2011.

"We continue to look to grow our Izod brand on a global level and see great opportunities in the Southeast Asia market," said Allen Sirkin, president and chief operating officer of PVH. "Ram Pacific has extensive knowledge and experience in this region and we look forward to partnering with them to develop and grow the Izod brand in an effective manner, while maintaining the brand heritage."

Ram Pacific Pte distributes luxury goods and luggage, including the French leather and luxury goods brand Longchamp, and German luggage maker Rimowa.
