The range will be designed by denim guru and D2 director Alan Kinney with a team of freelance designers. It will be sourced from Turkey, Portugal and the Far East.
D2 posted its first-ever loss last month. Pre-tax losses hit £1.7 million for the year to January 31, on flat sales of £50m. D2 has a raft of own labels, including Hoi Polloi and Soviet, and holds the UK licence for Kangol.
Pentland Brands previously designed and sold a range of Kickers clothing, but pulled the collection after spring 07 to focus on repositioning its footwear line in the UK.
