(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). Native Group Ltd. will produce a licensed collection of intimates under the Jessica McClintock label and plans to celebrate the new collection with a market week launch party in early February. Native produces intimate apparel including bras, panties, corsets, bustiers and shapewear, as well as some children’s sleepwear.
During the past decade, Native, a New York-based firm, has occasionally used such licensed labels as Chinese Laundry, Adolfo and Astrostyle. More recently, however, the company has focused on private label production.
Starting in 1969, designer Jessica McClintock has built a substantial San Francisco-based apparel firm, originally focusing on the junior market, including prom and wedding dresses. Over the years McClintock has moved into a wide range of products, several through licensing arrangements, including furniture, lighting, bedding, eye wear, children’s apparel, fragrances and handbags.
Overall, there would seem to be a multitude of potential outlets for Jessica McClintock intimates. Products bearing the designer’s name are sold in a variety of stores throughout North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. In addition, the firm operates 41 company-owned stores, about half of them located in the U.S. Department stores such as Nordstrom and Dillards offer McClintock dresses, while Macy’s sells both McClintock perfume and handbags and Target the perfumes.
Retail prices for Jessica McClintock dresses are moderate: on its web site they range from $45 for a cocktail dress to $299 for a bridal dress.
