Hampshire Group, Limited, a leading provider of women's and men's fashion apparel, today announced a three year extension of the Company's license agreement with Geoffrey Beene, LLC for the design, production and distribution of men's sweaters under the Geoffrey Beene brand.

“We are extremely pleased to be continuing our partnership with an established heritage brand like Geoffrey Beene,” said Mark Lepine, President of Hampshire Group's Men's division. “The renewed agreement further solidifies our portfolio of brands and demonstrates our commitment to providing retailers with superior quality product.”

Merle Sloss, EVP President of Licensing of Geoffrey Beene, LLC, “We are very happy to further our longstanding relationship with Hampshire Group. They have a strong track record and have done a great job in building brand equity in a competitive marketplace.”

Its customers include leading retailers such as JC Penney, Kohl's, Macy's, Belk's and Dillard's, for whom it provides trend-right, branded apparel. Hampshire's owned brands include Spring+Mercer, its “better” apparel line, Designers Originals, Hampshire's first brand and still a top-seller in department stores, as well as Mercer Street Studio, Requirements, and RQT. Hampshire also licenses the Geoffrey Beene and Dockers labels for men's sweaters, both of which are market leaders in their categories, and licenses JOE Joseph Abboud for men's sportswear and Alexander Julian Colours for men's tops.
