At Harrods, the range of men's clothing and accessories will be positioned as an alternative to a brand like Brioni Roman Style, the Italian maker of $5,000 suits. Harrods was acquired last month by Qatar Holding for £1.5 billion ($2.3 billion). Its move into own-label clothing follows the example of other department store groups. Liberty, for example, has just launched its first men's clothing line with Venice-based Slowear Group and a year after revamping its private label men's collection, Saks Fifth Avenue's men's collection is forecast to become the department store group's largest menswear brand.
