NEW YORK, NY - (NewMediaWire) - October 06, 2015 - Naked Brand Group Inc. (OTCQB: NAKD) ("Naked"), an innovative inner fashion and lifestyle brand, is pleased to announce that its men's underwear collections are now available for purchase at Dillard's, one of the nation's largest fashion apparel retailers. Styles available at select Dillard's department stores include Naked's Luxury Micromodal, Essential Cotton 2-Pack and Active Microfiber collections. The collection will also be available nationwide on Dillards.com in late October. This expanded retail presence in new markets is an important step in the commercial execution of Naked's growth strategy aimed at attracting a broader customer base with new products, packaging, pricing and marketing.
"We are delighted to be launching our new men's collections at Dillard's. Having an extensive working history with Dillard's, I know they are a fantastic partner," said Carole Hochman, CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Naked. "Adding a premier retailer like Dillard's as a partner for Naked, alongside other distinguished department stores like Nordstrom and Hudson Bay, is a key component of our business strategy to make Naked's outstanding products broadly available to consumers."
In conjunction with this important distribution milestone, Naked has also announced its expansion into men's loungewear. The new Fall 2015 men's loungewear collection, which is now available at www.wearnaked.com and will be available at select retail locations including Nordstromstores, extends the brand's product offering for men and complements Naked's recent launch into the women's market. Naked's men's loungewear collection is based on Naked's signature fabrics and includes a selection of lounge pants and shorts, as well as short and long sleeve tops retailing for $60-$80.
"Now both men and women can enjoy Naked's super soft fabrics from head to toe. We believe we have created impeccably designed loungewear that not only feels amazing but looks sharp enough for versatile, everyday wear," said Joel Primus, Naked's Founder and President. He added, "We look forward to expanding our customer base across the U.S. and Canada."
Naked was founded on one basic desire, to create a new standard for how products worn close to the skin fit, feel and function. Naked has a strong and growing retail footprint for its innovative and luxurious men's innerwear products in some of the best online and department stores in North America including Nordstrom, Hudson Bay, Dillard's, Amazon.com, BareNecessities.com and many more. In 2014, renowned designer and sleepwear pioneer Carole Hochman joined Naked as Chief Executive Officer, Chief Creative Officer and Chairwoman with the goal of growing Naked into a global lifestyle brand. In June 2015, Naked announced a strategic partnership with NBA Miami HEAT star Dwyane Wade. The 3-time NBA Champion, 11-time All Star and Olympic Gold Medalist joined the company's Advisory Board and will serve as Creative Director for a signature "Wade x Naked" collection of men's innerwear launching 2016. Naked is now headquartered in New York City and plans to expand into other apparel and product categories that can exemplify the mission of the brand, such as athleisurewear, swimwear, sportswear and more.
