Business news : Nikita set for change, unveiling COPSON ST. collaboration at Agenda
Creator of fashion blog COPSON ST., Maria Falbo radiates style with her flare forurban-tropic living. We translated Maria’s tropical vibes and eye for style into two unique prints with a touch of acid wash and skate-luxe magic. Spring/ Summer 2014 features three additional collections for soaking in a surf, skate and summer lifestyle—all carefully designed to blur the line of beach and street with effortless style and a tropical twist.
Carla Murphy, Brand Director for Nikita commented, “We are excited to be bringing a collab to market for summer 2014—the combination of Maria’s love of low-slung, summer living and Nikita’s understated design has resulted in a truly unique collection full of spirit and interesting aesthetics. Muted graphical expression combined with everyday ready-to-wear clothing has made this a collection for every girl, whatever their activity."
With a new marketing structure now in place for N. America, Nikita is set for change after the recent acquisition by Finnish sporting goods company Amer Sports in Q4 of 2011. As the integration of the brand evolves for the action sport division of Amer, the group is excited about the promising future of Nikita as a 360-degree brand and continuing to bring authentic product for women to market.
"What we said was vital upon purchasing Nikita was that we always keep true to what the brand is. To me, The Copson St. collab is a cool idea, with cool people and products. That is the purest form of Nikita I know and upon bringing it all together it feels pretty powerful. " – Brad Steward, President of Action Sports
