Perry Ellis International Announces New Footwear License for Perry Ellis Portfolio Brand

MIAMI, Sept. 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Perry Ellis International (PEI) (NASDAQ:PERY) announced today a new license with Doctorstick Korea Co., Ltd, to design, manufacture, market and distribute men’s and women’s contemporary sport and casual shoes under the Perry Ellis Portfolio® brand.

As a designer, Perry Ellis played with fashion convention simply by not taking it so seriously. Following only what felt right. In doing so, he redefined the fashion industry. Today, this philosophy continues to inspire the Perry Ellis brand which offers an updated, modern play on classics – designed for those who want to follow their own individual sense of style. That’s what it means to be…Very Perry.

The Perry Ellis brand is a fully developed lifestyle brand which includes 37 different product categories, spans over 50 countries, and generates nearly $1B in global retail sales annually.

“We are extremely pleased to announce our partnership with Doctorstick Korea and are confident this joint effort will provide us with a platform consistent with our strategic initiative to expand the Perry Ellis brand globally,” commented George Feldenkreis, Executive Chairman of Perry Ellis International.

Doctorstick Korea Co., Ltd President Jun Seok Lee stated, “It is our honor to partner with Perry Ellis International, one of the greatest fashion brands in the USA.  We are planning to launch the footwear program through ecommerce platforms and television shopping channels in Korea in Spring 2017 and target an introductory full collection by mid-2017 with an emphasis on quality and design.”
