Bartlett to design menswear for Claiborne


NEW YORK Liz Claiborne today announced that John Bartlett will be designing the Claiborne men's sportswear line.

The line, dubbed "Claiborne by John Bartlett," will be in stores by spring 2009.


Dave McTague, evp of Partnered Brands for Liz Claiborne, said, "What the everyday man needs right now is a collection that can dress him from work to weekend with an updated yet classic look - but what's out in the market right now doesn't fit his lifestyle. John is known throughout the industry as a talented, cutting edge menswear designer and we feel that he is the perfect partner to help Claiborne give this customer exactly what he needs."

Bartlett is an award-winning designer whose work has been inspired by such diverse icons as Charlie Brown, Forrest Gump and Paul Bunyan. In September of 2007, Bartlett opened his first retail environment in Manhattan's West Village, a space that houses his signature John Bartlett collection of sportswear, tailored clothing and furnishings, accessories and collectibles.
