Fashion House Donna Karan International reached a licensing deal with Liz Claiborne to create a new line of men’s sportswear for the United States and Canada.

The collection, to include knits, trousers, blazers and coats, will be targeted to the “better” segment, with articles priced from $59.50 to $595. It will be available in department stores in fall of this year.

The move will help the fashion house named for Karan (pictured) reach a wider audience as other designers such as Vera Wang have partnered with retailers on clothing lines.
