Jessica McClintock develops new home lines
January 11, 2007,
San Francisco – Jessica McClintock, the fashion designer who has expanded into the home furnishings world, will expand her presence in this marketplace with a launch of two home textiles collections this year. The component for adult consumers will be a three-tiered program of 12 collections in bed, window, and bath that will debut in August from licensee Pacific Coast Home Furnishings (PCHF).
In the adult bedding collection – which will include complete comforter and duvet sets, sheets, window treatments, and full bath coordinates including accessories – the top tier, Jessica McClintock - The Romance Collection, will be targeted to luxury specialty stores, and produced mainly in the PCHF’s City of Commerce, Calif. facilities.
Jessica by Jessica McClintock will be exclusive to department stores and big-box specialty retailers, and will be a combination of imported and domestically produced product.
Gunne Sax by Jessica McClintock will have a more youthful appeal, targeting value-oriented retailers.
PCHF owners Perry Banafshe and Sam Samani commented, “With her love of romantic lifestyles, the collection will be a blend of timeless designs and embellishments which are the signature of all of her fashions. The elegance of the collection will be reflected in the fabrics such as silks, velvets, printed jacquards, embroideries, soft suede, damasks, and chenille.”
Kerry Glasser, McClintock’s licensing agent and head of New York-based Concept Marketing Group, facilitated the partnership.
