For the Winter 2008 season the German company Michalsky Holding (michalsky.com) will be increasing the international distribution of its premium lines MICHALSKY and M-67.

In Europe Agentur MAB in Dusseldorf are responsible for distribution within Germany, Studio 13 - based in London - will serve the UK and Ireland, ACO Modeagentur in Salzburg caters to Austrian clients and the Cagol Fashion Company in Zurich is responsible for Switzerland. A temporary showroom will also welcome clients during Tranoi Femme in Paris.

As well as focusing on distribution Michalsky Holding is making headway to establish its own retail business, and will be launching its first store in Berlin, Monbijouplace, in the Spring. The 150sq-meters space will present MICHALSKY and M-67 Michalsky Jeans as well as MICHALSKY Eyewear. Michael Michalsky, pictured above, explains: “With this new structure of distribution we want to go the second step towards [becoming an] international lifestyle brand.”
