Having launched a successful ready-to-wear collection this year, J Brand just announced plans to release a line of handbags and shoes, too. The expansion comes with news that the brand has been bought by Japanese company Fast Retailing Co. Ltd. (owners of Uniqlo, Theory and Helmut Lang). They’ll also venture in to men’s RTW, brick and mortar stores including a Los Angeles flagship and more of a presence in the Asia-Pacific Rim.
More information on the handbags and shoes, including the launch date and photos, coming soon!
