After thoroughly sounding out the market, MCS Fashion GmbH in Vienna - the general European licence holder of menswear, ladieswear and childrenswear for the lifestyle brand US Polo Assn. - has awarded the US Polo Assn. licence for Europe to clothing maker Hucke AG.
Hucke AG was chosen because of its substantial presence in the major European markets and because of its expertise in the menswear, ladieswear and childrenswear sectors.

The image, lifestyle and tradition of the polo sport makes US Polo Assn. the only authentic 'Polo brand' in the world.
Hucke will begin with lifestyle orientated designs 'Young & Trendy' and 'Casual' for Spring/Summer 2007 with deliveries starting from December.
Further licences may be awarded in the near future, particularly in the accessories market as well as shoes, glasses, watches and jewellery.
