LOOK to have exclusive rights to import Tory Burch products
Apr '09
Tory Burch LLC, a lifestyle brand which embodies the personal style and spirit of its co-founder and creative director, announces a partnership with LOOK Inc., who has exclusive rights to distribute and retail its products in Japan. As a partner to LOOK Inc., Mitsubishi Corporation has been granted the exclusive rights to import Tory Burch products into Japan. The multi-year agreement will start with the Fall 2009 season.

Since its launch in 2004 as a lifestyle concept with multiple categories, including ready-to-wear, shoes, handbags and jewelry, the Tory Burch brand has received recognition within the industry, including the CFDA Award for Accessories Designer of the Year in 2008.

"Our expansion into Japan is a critical component of our strategy to increase the presence of our brand on a global scale," said Tory Burch. "I have always found Japan to be an incredibly inspiring country both from a cultural and fashion perspective, and believe there is an exciting opportunity in this market for our product. I look forward to developing this new business with such experienced partners."

"LOOK Inc.'s established commitment to bringing internationally renowned brands to Japan makes Tory Burch a natural partner," said Takehiko Maki, president of LOOK Inc. "We look forward to launching this brand in our market, and believe that this high quality, sophisticated collection will have many fans in Japan."

Distribution of the brand in Japan will launch in April 2009 in Isetan Shinjuku. Following that, LOOK Inc. will open Tory Burch retail boutiques and distribution via select department and specialty stores. The first freestanding retail boutique is planned to open no later than Spring 2010.

Since its establishment in 1962, LOOK Inc. has moved through the history as a pioneer of womenswear manufacturers in Japan and has acquired a reputation for its high level of manufacturing quality. In addition to its well-established retail network through department stores, it has developed a wider range of business activities by expanding its distribution network to include boutiques and fashion buildings as well as free standing stores of world-famous fashion accessories brands.

Tory Burch is an attainable, luxury, lifestyle brand defined by classic American sportswear with an eclectic sensibility, which embodies the personal style and spirit of its co-founder and creative director, Tory Burch.
