Nineties Nostalgia Propels Coogi Brand Resurgence | the new york times
The company plans to focus on heritage knitwear after the licensing deals expire. “My vision is to get it back to competitive with Gucci and Missoni,” said Willie Esco, the company’s creative director. He said the brand is pursuing a wider audience, from the “Rag & Bone-wearer to Macklemore to hipsters.”
