PVH Corp. announced that it has become a minority shareholder in the parent company of the Karl Lagerfeld brand. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. 
 
This investment will enable PVH to benefit from the growth of this unique brand and includes the right of first offer to license the brand for North America, which has primarily been focused in Europe and Asia. 
 
Karl Lagerfeld was part of the Tommy Hilfiger Group until PVH acquired the Group in 2010, at which time it was spun off to the Group’s former shareholders. Other investors in Karl Lagerfeld include Apax Funds, the Chou Group, Mr. Tommy Hilfiger and Fred Gehring, CEO of Tommy Hilfiger. 
 
Pier Paolo Righi, President of Karl Lagerfeld B.V., said: “We are excited to have PVH as a shareholder. We have ambitious plans for the business and have embarked on an aggressive growth strategy, opening a new store every three weeks over the last six months. We believe PVH’s strong track record in supporting the growth opportunity of global designer lifestyle brands will be a big asset.” 
 
PVH Corp., one of the world's largest apparel companies, owns and markets the iconic Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger brands worldwide. It is the world's largest shirt and neckwear company and markets a variety of goods under its own brands, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Van Heusen, IZOD, ARROW, Warner’s and Olga, and its licensed brands, including Speedo, Geoffrey Beene, Kenneth Cole New York, Kenneth Cole Reaction, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Sean John, Chaps, Donald J.
