NEW YORK, Sept. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Madewell, the iconic American denim brand, today announces it will expand its international distribution from 3 to more than 100 countries around the world. Starting September 17, 2015, Madewell will be available to customers throughout Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and South America for the first time.
Madewell is a brand rooted in denim -- but it also focuses on all of the things worn with jeans: timeless leather jackets, great boots, slouchy tees and have-forever totes. The line is known for effortless styles with a touch of tomboy, e.g., its signature Transport Tote and beloved High Riser Skinny Skinny Jeans.
Since opening its first store in 2006, Madewell has gained attention for its unique style perspective, approachable designs and world-class customer service. With headquarters in New York City and a denim studio in Los Angeles, Madewell is committed to offering clothes you can wear every day, always with its trademark cool and artful style.
Madewell is personified by the many artists, musicians and influencers the brand has collaborated with, like Alexa Chung (co-designer of Alexa Chung for Madewell) and past campaign stars Solange Knowles, Caroline de Maigret and Dree Hemingway.
"Since launching Madewell back in 2006, we've been hearing from customers around the world that they want anytime access to our goods. We are excited to announce that as of this week we are now able to bring the cool-girl style that Madewell is famous for to customers in over 100 countries," states Millard Drexler, chairman and CEO of J.Crew Group, Inc.
By the end of 2015, Madewell will have over 100 U.S. retail locations. The brand will lead its international growth with e-commerce, allowing customers exclusive access to its entire collection around the clock.
