"Epic Rights continues to be a leader in adding trendsetting and iconic bands to its roster that appeal to a diverse consumer base, which has similarly attracted the top names in today's apparel licensing business," said Lisa Streff, SVP of Licensing, Epic Rights. "Our strategy – to align the Epic Rights' artist roster with best in class apparel partners, each with their own specific area of expertise and the ability to deliver across all price points, age groups and retail tiers in the U.S. – will allow us to honor the artists' legacy and artwork, which will ultimately benefit everyone involved."
The licensees strategically appointed by Epic Rights include Lauren Moshi, Retro Brands, Mighty Fine, Jerry Leigh, Life Clothing, Trevco and Impact, which will introduce rock apparel clothing lines, including T-shirts, fashion tops, knits, hoodies, sweatshirts, dresses, leggings, loungewear and more, by utilizing expanded photo and creative assets, as well as great graphic elements. The new apparel will debut across a broad range of retail channels throughout the U.S. beginning in spring 2015.
Each licensing partner was strategically selected to represent specific artists within Epic Rights' roster for specific channels of distribution because of their reputation and strengths, design capabilities and product quality and execution. The partners will utilize different graphics and design elements, so that collectively, they will appeal to all age demographics – from youth, to juniors and adults – and be available at a wide range of retail stores, including high-end department stores, mass market, mid-tier, specialty apparel, independents and e-commerce sites.
