MONCLER TO BOW: The Italian-owned outerwear brand Moncler will take over the Liberty of London store at 197 Sloane Street, according to industry sources in London. As reported earlier this week, an unnamed bidder approached Liberty principals, bought their lease and paid a $1.2 million cash premium for the 2,000-square-foot London store. Liberty will move out next month, although it is still unclear when Moncler will move in. A Moncler spokesman in Milan declined to comment. Private equity firm Carlyle Group holds a 48 percent stake in the hot brand that has worked in the past with Junya Watanabe, Nicholas Ghesquière and Fendi. Remo Ruffini, the company’s chairman, owns 38 percent, with the remainder held by other investors.
