Hartmarx Corporation announced that Jerry Kaye has been named Head Designer of the Dr. Martens and Lyle and Scott Vintage apparel brands marketed by HMX Sportswear Inc, a New York-based subsidiary of Hartmarx.

Kaye will report to Eric Prengel, Group President of HMX Sportswear. "We are pleased to have as accomplished a designer as Jerry Kaye in place as we launch the Dr. Martens and Lyle and Scott Vintage apparel brands," stated Prengel.

"Jerry's vast experience in taking heritage brands and making them modern and relevant in marketplace will be invaluable to HMX Sportswear as we continue to build a targeted portfolio of global lifestyle apparel brands."

Kaye's professional design experience spans over 20 years in the better men's designer marketplace. From 1993 to 2001 Kaye served as the Men's Design Director for Perry Ellis where he was instrumental in repositioning the brand in the 1990's.

In 2001, he was elevated to Creative Director of Perry Ellis. Most recently, in 2005, he launched his own design and brand consulting firm. His clients included a roster of well-established brands such as Arnold Brant, Robert Graham and Levi's.

Kaye said, "I am excited to be part of an organization like Hartmarx which has set the standard for upscale, quality clothing in this industry for over 100 years.

I am anxious to bring my broad experience in apparel design and branding strategy from the realm of fashion forward lifestyle collections to the development and reinterpretation of major global brands that already possess such unique cultural heritage."
