The Charles James label is preparing for relaunch.
Teaming up with his wife Georgina Chapman and brother in-law Edward Chapman (founders of Marchesa), Weinstein plans to re-establish the brand and bring it to the same level as Chanel and Dior.
“Charles James was one of the most incredible couturiers in the history of fashion and this label deserves to be a household name in same ranks as Chanel, Dior and Oscar de la Renta,” said Weinstein in a statement. “There isn’t a single designer in high fashion who wouldn’t name him as a major influence. We are beyond thrilled to be spearheading the revival of this brand and bringing it back to the world’s finest retailers.”
The Weinstein Company have agreed to license, with an option to buy, the defunct luxury fashion brand from the late couturier’s estate. Is the modern fashion world ready for another couture brand, lets wait and see.
