Asics and Vivienne Westwood have teamed up to create an exclusive capsule collection of footwear styles for the Asics and Asics Tiger brands. The first two styles will launch online and in stores in April.
Tiger of Sweden and By Malene Birger owner IC Group is selling its under-performing Saint Tropez brand to DK Company A/S and has also issued a warning that its remaining brands will be weaker than it had expected.
Sports giant Asics really does have a challenge on its hands. The company has reported bleak nine-month figures and has also downgraded its full-year profit expectations as net sales fell 4.7% to ¥295.68 billion.
