Kate Spade To Enter Juicy Couture Storefront On Newtown Lane


Kate Spade New York will take over the 17 Newtown Lane storefront that currently houses Juicy Couture in late May, according to Mechele Flaum, the property’s co-owner.

Juicy Couture will close up shop in early March, according to Ms. Flaum, but a specific date has yet to be determined. Fifth & Pacific Companies, formerly known as Liz Claiborn Inc., owns Kate Spade and sold the intellectual property of Juicy Couture to the licensing company Authentic Brands Group in November. According to a statement by Fifth & Pacific’s CEO William McComb, many Juicy Couture stores will be converted into Kate Spade boutiques.

Press reps for Juicy Couture and Kate Spade could not be reached for comment.
