People's Liberation coming to ..... Charlotte Russe Stores

Apparently competition and market conditions have made People's Liberation a casuality, and will now only be sold exclusively at Charlotte Russe. I definitely saw this one coming, i never see the People's Liberation brand anymore.

People's Liberation Partners with Charlotte Russe in Exclusive Product Distribution Agreement
Popular Premium Brand Denim, Casual Knits, Activewear and Accessories to be Offered Exclusively at Charlotte Russe Stores

http://www.marketwatch.com/news/story/Peoples-Liberation-Partners-Charlotte-Russe/story.aspx?guid={1346E327-2CE6-410F-A6D9-FD4D175AD7A1}

People's Liberation, Inc, a leading provider of premium denim and branded apparel for young women, and Charlotte Russe Holding, Inc. , a top specialty retailer, today announced a collaboration under which Charlotte Russe will become the exclusive distributor in North and Central America of People's Liberation's specially designed apparel and accessories. Under the multi-year agreement, People's Liberation will design, source and produce branded premium denim, casual knits, activewear and accessories for sale exclusively in Charlotte Russe stores. The partnership -- which joins two recognized names in fashionable apparel -- increases the accessibility of People's Liberation popular premium brand apparel and accessories, and caters to the brand, style and value preferences of today's dynamic and fashion-savvy Teens and Young Women.
People's Liberation was launched in 2004 targeting fashion-forward consumers. The Company has since positioned itself as an important fashion brand in the premium denim world. People's Liberation denim, knits and activewear, currently sold in select boutiques and department stores including Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Kitson, Atrium, and Fred Segal, will become available exclusively through Charlotte Russe.
Jennifer Salopek, Chairman of Charlotte Russe, stated, "We are excited to be partnering with People's Liberation. This collaboration represents an important strategic step in redefining the Charlotte brand and further reinforces our positioning as the store of choice for fashion conscious young women looking for great value."
"We look forward to growing the People's Liberation brand with our new partner, Charlotte Russe, and are happy to work with such a focused retailer whose consumers appreciate both great fashion and value," noted Colin Dyne, Chief Executive Officer of People's Liberation. "We believe that rolling out People's Liberation apparel and accessories into the Charlotte Russe customer base will strategically enhance sales for both our Company and Charlotte Russe while keeping the DNA and integrity of the People's Liberation brand."
"People's Liberation is a strong collection that adds another level to our already thriving denim and casual apparel business," said Emilia Fabricant, President and Chief Merchandising Officer, Charlotte Russe. "Its quality and modern designs allow us to meet our customers' need for branded premium denim, while still offering them significant value. I look forward to working with the talented team at People's Liberation as we introduce the Charlotte shopper to these exciting selections through creative and new merchandising initiatives in our stores."
The People's Liberation product will launch in Charlotte Russe stores for the Back-to-School season of 2009. People's Liberation denim, knits and activewear will also be available exclusively online at www.charlotterusse.com.

"Premium" and Charlotte Russe do not belong in the same sentence.

I can't imagine them selling at Charlotte Russe unless they drastically reduce the price.

aw boo, this really sucks I love PL... especially the bella style. I guess it's no more! I won't be dumping mine but I won't be buying anymore either. Surely they aren't going to be exactly the same... like different styles or something?

LOL, I am not too stuck up to buy a cheap shirt at CR if necessary. I saw a really cute one yesterday but forgot to go back and check it out. Granted 95% of their stuff is trashy/nasty, but there is the occasional cute top that looks great with my $250 jeans.

True. I have bought a few tops there for 'going out' HOWEVER they only last a wash or two before they are thrashed looking. Aren't the jeans there like $40? I'm sure they will have to bring down the price of PL which means the quality is going to go downhill too.

Yes, I forgot to say that CR tops are for single use only!

Yeah they have a lot of trashy looking shirts but I like browsing the clearance racks every once in a while for some cheap "going out" tops.
According to their website the most expensive jeans they carry are $78 but at my mall the only ones they sell are in the $30-$40 range and they are usually buy 1 get 1 half off.

glad i don't have any PL! I always found them enormous in the waist, which is annoying on my body type.

What I'm guessing will happen is they'll produce cheap shit and just slap their name on it, like all those brands do for Target, so it's not actually a $180 pair of jeans they'll be selling. Still, though, lending your name to a line for a trashtastic store is pretty much the kiss of death for a given brand.
