Caleres has entered into a strategic partnership with a multi-brand retail management and distribution company, Brand Investment Holding, to market its Naturalizer and Sam Edelman brands in China across multiple channels, including branded retail stores and e-commerce sites. Naturalizer and Sam Edelman will be available online in China this summer. The brands will be sold initially in only six new brick-and-mortar stores in key cities. The first Naturalizer stores will open in Beijing this summer, followed by a Sam Edelman shop in Shanghai. Additional stores are planned for other parts of the country. Based in Shanghai, Brand Investment Holding is part of the Gemkell Group, which operates luxury fashion retail boutiques in the Asia-Pacific region for important fashion brands like Balenciaga, Chloé, Givenchy, Kenzo and Marc Jacobs.
