US: RG Barry to license Nautica and J-Class slippers
RG Barry Corporation has entered into an exclusive three-year North American licensing agreement with Nautica Apparel to develop and market slippers for men, women and children under the Nautica and J-Class brands.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The company, which owns the Dearfoams brand, will introduce the line of Nautica men's slippers later this year, retailing at US$36-to-$48.
"The addition of Nautica to our product line-up continues our long-term growth strategy of adding brands that are attractive to retailers and consumer segments where we see real growth potential," said Greg Tunney, chief executive officer and president of RG Barry.
Nautica Apparel is a subsidiary of VF Sportswear, which is a division of VF Corporation.
In conjunction with licensing, RG Barry has named Susan M Smith, VP of sales, overseeing the licensed brands.
She is the former vice president of hosiery sales for Mallory & Church LLC and previously held executive sales positions with American Essentials, Carolee Designs, Supreme International and Liz Claiborne, the company said.
