Nicole Miller Signs Diffusion Sportswear License With The Moret Group

Wednesday, Jul 26, 2017

Nicole Miller announced today a licensing deal with The Moret Group for the development and distribution of sportswear under the Nicole Miller New York brand. Known for a distinctly feminine look with an edge, Nicole Miller combines her focus on fit, fabrications, and technique with the quality and consistency of The Moret Group through this partnership. Designer Nicole Miller is thrilled to debut the sportswear division as a natural extension of her commercially successful Nicole Miller New York (NMNY) diffusion label.

The first collection will launch in stores for Spring 2018, and features multiple categories ranging from knits to jackets and daywear pieces. Taking cues from Nicole Miller's Collection and Artelier lines, the Nicole Miller New York sportswear developed by The Moret Group infuses edgy, masculine elements like clean tailoring lines and mixes them with romantic silhouettes, appliqués, and floral heritage prints.

"We began manufacturing women's activewear and sportswear over 40 years ago, standing behind a commitment to design, quality, and consistency. Nicole Miller is an iconic New York designer, who is known worldwide for her same stance," said Michael Shweky of The Moret Group. "Nicole's designs are timeless and instantly recognizable, and The Moret Group is excited at the opportunity to add her name into our portfolio."

Nicole Miller noted, "Sportswear is a fast-growing part of our business at the Artelier level. We've had a lot of success with dresses in our Nicole Miller New York diffusion label, so adding sportswear is the perfect next step for that line. The price point also helps us get in touch with a younger audience that wants to step into the Nicole Miller world."

The debut line will be placed in stores where Nicole Miller New York is sold. The Spring 2018 collection will debut to buyers in August 2017, with the core offering retailing between $48 and $68 for knit tops, $78 and $98 for blouses, and $128 and $148 for jackets.
