The latest Vince Camuto intimate apparel and loungewear collections were recently unveiled at the Vandale Industries midtown showroom. Vandale, which launched the brand in Fall 2017, has been steadily expanding its merchandise offerings and today covers both women’s and men’s pieces along with a rapidly growing loungewear category. The women’s intimate apparel collection is dominated by alluring animal prints, lace, and versatile body suits. Bras have several modern features such as racer backs and laser cuts with light underwire and slight padding. But what was more significant was the introduction of its men’s basics and underwear pieces including shorts, crew neck cotton T’s, and microfiber stretch boxer briefs.
Vandale Industries, established in 1982, designs and manufactures a range of licensed and private label intimate apparel brands such as Jessica Simpson, Izod, and Lucky Brand. Its multi-pack T’s and underwear are priced from $36 to $42 in ultra-soft fabrications with a sleek, new waistband brand signature. Its loungewear ranges from $26 to $48 and easily doubles as casual everyday wear. Both men’s and women’s come in neutrals and muted tones.
The late Vince Camuto, who founded Nine West in 1978 with Jerome Fisher, was a prolific entrepreneur whose brand offered a vast array of women’s and men’s product categories, which were sold worldwide. After selling Nine West, Mr. Camuto started his eponymous label and thereafter aggressively sought licensees in footwear, dresses, coats, denim, fragrance, accessories, and intimate apparel. Among his last significant ventures were: a footwear collaboration with Tory Burch, the license for BCBG Max Azria and Lucky Brand shoes, and private-label shoes for Banana Republic, Ann Taylor and Dillard’s. The label was acquired by Authentic Brands just last year and continues to thrive under its current management.
