CAT clothing has appointed Ulrich Simpson as its new head of design for spring 09. Simpson will spearhead a strategy to redevelop the brand’s design personality ahead of its UK relaunch.
CAT clothing stopped trading in Europe four years ago, but is now being distributed worldwide by SRI in a new deal taking effect from spring 09. As part of CAT’s global expansion, SRI has already secured distribution deals in Belgium, France, Italy and Australia.
A capsule autumn 08 range designed by Simpson will be delivered from September, and this will be followed by Simpson’s first collection, for spring 09.
“We are keen to re-establish CAT clothing in its core markets, both here and abroad, and the reaction to the brand’s return has been very pleasing,” said Michael Hayles, head of the company’s European operations.
