The distribution of footwear from the globally recognised Kenneth Cole brand in selected cities including London, Paris, Milan, and Berlin, is slated for Fall 2018. There will be a focus on men’s and women’s Kenneth Cole New York and Reaction Kenneth Cole footwear and Women’s Gentle Souls footwear.

GBG will bring Kenneth Cole’s modern footwear designs to the European, Middle Eastern, and African customer through all major retail channels including department stores, independent retailers, and ecommerce. Kenneth Cole Productions and GBG are working with some of Europe’s top retailers for a market launch in Fall 2018.

The company has built a strong presence globally through Kenneth Cole owned and operated direct retail business as well as boutiques located within select department stores and specialty retailer locations in North America, as well as through distributor-operated shops in Asia and Latin America.

Marc Schneider, Kenneth Cole Productions Inc.’s chief executive officer said, “We are looking forward to having a central European based partner who specialises in footwear and is able to offer best in class service to department stores and independent retailers in these regions. We are excited about this partnership and the growth opportunities it affords us in these categories of our business.” (GK)
