Fashion giant Tommy Hilfiger Corp on Wednesday revealed it has agreed a multi-year licensing deal with SK Global Co Ltd for the distribution of Tommy Hilfiger products in South Korea.

The company said in a press release its men's sportswear collection will be the first to debut in department store concessions and in freestanding stores in the fall, followed by the womenswear, jeans wear, and childrenswear collections.

Bongwoon Kim and Eunhee Lee, two prominent fashion industry executives recently recruited to SK Global, will oversee the brand's launch and rapid expansion throughout Korea. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"We are very excited to launch Tommy Hilfiger in a market as important as Korea. This new marketing and distribution agreement is part of our commitment to further develop the global market strategy for the Tommy Hilfiger brand," said Lynn Shanahan, president of Licensing at Tommy Hilfiger.

SK Fashion executive director, Man Gyun Kim, added: "Korean consumers have clearly demonstrated their desire for quality sportswear such as Tommy Hilfiger. We are delighted to be working with Tommy Hilfiger in bringing this truly global brand to Korea."
