Kangol Ltd is to sell its women's wear through retailer Topshop in the UK, appointing designer Markus Lupfer to design the new collection.

The new collection will be launched in July 2006 in Topshop stores and online at topshop.com. It will be positioned at the top end of Topshop's price range.

"We appreciate the opportunity to work with Topshop as the most dynamic and exciting women's retailer in the world," said Kangol chief executive David Heys.

"Kangol is emerging as a global brand in its own right and we see this as a fantastic opportunity to present a collection that truly exemplifies our brand values and heritage."

The licence deal follows Kangol's recently announced contract with AJT (IP), which focuses on men's wear. Kangol said the two deals were "complementary" and "consistent with the brand's tiered approach to market".
