Targeting new markets such as Eastern Europe, the Baltic states and the Middle East, Aesse Spa, owner of the labels Les Explorateurs Canadiens (womenswear and menswear) and Les Petits Explorateurs Canadiens (kidswear), has signed an agreement with Milan-based Sari Spazio for the distribution of these two outdoor brands in those regions. The distributing company, founded by Assomoda Italia’s Giulio Di Sabato, is aiming to develop a stronger international presence for the two brands in 3,000 boutiques, department stores and luxury shops in more than 50 countries.
