An investment company fronted by Jay-Z has acquired the licence for Artful Dodger, which is owned by Signature Apparel Group. It also bought the licences for Signature Apparel’s other brands.
“As a company Signature has both the production infrastructure and financial capacity to make Artful Dodger the brand I always envisioned it to be,” Langton said.
Artful Dodger’s current range includes zip-through track-tops, graphic-print hoodies, branded T-shirts and denim. It is stocked by 40 accounts, including Harvey Nichols.
