The brand Marithé+Francois Girbaud will no longer be operating through the companies Cravatatakiller, Sabatoun and MFG Services. The liquidation was ordered by the Commercial Court of Paris, as explained by a spokesperson of the brand.

Denis Noharet, chairman of the group since June 1, 2013, is working alongside the founders, Marithé Bachellerie and François Girbaud, and a foreign group on a re-launch project between the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014. The deadline set by the Commercial Court proved too tight, despite the interest shown by this group.  

The contract with the master licensee with FFI started from F/W 2012/2013 has ended and it will not produce the Summer 2014 collections.

The directly operated stores of Paris, Lyon and in Belgium are closed in expectation of a potential recovery, while partner stores will remain open. The stores from Nantes, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Biarritz, Perpignan, Montpellier, Strasbourg, Tours, Grenoble, Metz, Casablanca and London are still open.
