NAUTICA: THE EVOLUTION OF A TIMELESS CLASSIC
What began as a collection of outerwear almost thirty years ago has become a leading global lifestyle brand representing the finest in men’s, women’s and kid’s apparel and accessories, as well as a complete home collection. Over the past three decades, Nautica has become one of the most important and most recognized brands throughout the world. Part of VF Corporation since 2003, a leader in branded quality apparel, Nautica is more relevant than ever to today’s consumer with refined casual classics that are inspired and energized by the water.
Nautica set sail in 1983 when founder, David Chu, created six styles of outerwear intended to seamlessly fuse fashion and function. Named for the Latin word “Nauticus” for ship, the Nautica logo became a spinnaker, a timeless symbol of adventure and exploration. Today, the world of Nautica represents both a rediscovery and a reinterpretation of what Americans have always wanted to wear. – See more at: http://mbfashionweek.com/designers/nautica#sthash.tLSLEhqk.dpuf
