AQUASCUTUM MAKES MARK: Aquascutum may not be staging its usual runway show during London Fashion Week in September, but it still plans to have a presence. The British brand will present its spring collection on Sept. 21 at the flagship on Regent Street. Earlier this month, Aquascutum’s Japanese parent, Renown Inc., announced it was pulling the brand off the LFW schedule due to Aquascutum’s pending sale and a desire to consolidate its investment in the brand. “We will be using this opportunity to be able to show the collections in an innovative and more interactive format,” said Michael Herz, head of design, women’s wear. Renown put Aquascutum up for sale last year and is currently in advanced talks with the British brand’s Chinese licensee, YGM Trading Ltd. Aquascutum’s chief executive, Kim Winser, quit the company in May after Renown rejected her management buyout bid.
