A GOOD SPORT: French contemporary brand The Kooples is launching a separate casual line that it describes as a blend between Ivy League and Parisian cool. The Kooples Sport collection, due to go on sale in February, will include polo shirts, T-shirts, blazers, cardigans, leggings and sweatshirts. The price positioning will be similar to the main The Kooples collection, with polo shirts retailing between 50 euros and 90 euros, or $66 to $119 at current exchange.

The collection for men and women will be sold through a new network of dedicated The Kooples Sport stores, the first of which is to open on Rue des Francs-Bourgeois in Paris. It will also be sold in corners, starting with Paris department stores Printemps and Galeries Lafayette, and online, with selected pieces available in existing The Kooples boutiques.
