NEW HORIZONS: Paris-based men’s tailoring brand Arnys is interested in finding a U.S. partner to open its first boutique in New York, according to Jean Grimbert, co-owner of the brand. Best known for its Forestière jacket and founded in 1933, the brand has dressed the likes of Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway and, more recently, Pierre Bergé and François-Henri Pinault. It is stocked in a handful of U.S. stores, including George Greene in Chicago. “The brand is confidential,” said Grimbert. “The U.S. is an obvious market for us.” Arnys is also seeking a distributor in Japan following the expiration of its contract with Sanki, he added.
