D2, a British young fashion chain, has obtained the UK license for Kickers clothing. The license was previously held by Pentland Brands, which ceased offering Kickers apparel after the Spring 2007 collection in order to focus on repositioning its footwear line in the UK. A Kickers menswear line will be launched in all of D2’s 72 stores next Easter. D2 also holds the UK apparel license for Kangol and has several of its own labels, including Hoi Polloi and Soviet.
