LEVI’S LEAVES THE KIDILIZ GROUP AND ENTRUSTS THE EUROPEAN LICENSE OF LEVI’S KIDS TO THE HADDAD BRANDS GROUP
From the Fall-Winter 2019/20 collection, the Haddad Brands, whose portfolio includes Nike, Converse and Jordan brands, will now be in charge of Levi’s children’s collections. The American group succeeds to Kidiliz, a licensee of the brand since 2002. For the French group whose portfolio is built around 14 brands with their own brands such as Z, Catimini or Absorba on one side, and the licenses such as Kenzo Kids or Paul Smith Junior, the departure of this license is significant. Levi’s Kids is the leader of its portfolio in terms of turnover. This loss of license is all the more remarkable as it is part of a turning point for Kidiliz, which will soon be under the bosom of the Chinese Semir.

The e-commerce giant has opted for a six week Gucci online ‘pop-up’ or while supplies last, to ensure exclusivity. Designed for babies and children up to 12 years old, their clothes are perfectly in tune with the eccentric and flamboyant world of Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s Artistic Director.
