Family-focused retailer Kohl's Corporation has revealed plans to launch Polo Ralph Lauren's Chaps brand for women and boys in all stores and on

The agreement, which will come into effect in spring next year, is a one year exclusive deal.

The women's line will include lifestyle sportswear such as woven and knit tops, shorts, pants, sweaters and outerwear. Chaps for boys will include woven and knit tops, denim and chino bottoms, sweaters and outerwear.

Polo Ralph Lauren will be responsible for product design, development, production and delivery.

Kevin Mansell, Kohl's president, said: "This strong addition complements and strengthens our mission to deliver exclusive national brands, but even more importantly, continues to differentiate Kohl's in the marketplace."

Chaps for men successfully launched in all Kohl's stores in the spring of 2005. The company believes that the brand may ultimately span additional merchandise categories throughout the store.
