Activist Investor Questions Perry Ellis Acquisition Deal

The battle for Perry Ellis International might be heating up again.
On Thursday, Water Island Capital disclosed a 5.5 percent ownership stake in the company and in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing said it “does not believe that the merger consideration” by Feldenkreis Holdings LLC “represents fair value to the Issuer’s shareholders.” It went on to say that it is “considering various options and remedies to maximize the value of its shares in connection with the merger.”
As reported, in mid-August, the Perry Ellis Special Committee ended discussions with Randa Accessories which had submitted a higher $ 444 million offer for the company and reiterated a commitment to a $ 437 million transaction it inked with former chief executive officer George Feldenkreis to take the company private. Randa had offered $ 28.90 a share to Feldenkreis’ $ 27.50.
The special committee said the decision was a response to news that an inbound licensor would not approve a change in control of the license to Randa should it buy the company. It said the inbound licensor was the company’s largest, leaving speculation that it was Nike Inc., which has a business with Perry Ellis valued at more than $ 100 million.
Randa’s expertise is in accessories while Perry Ellis manufactures

STREET SIGNS: The Making of a Celebrity Sneaker Deal

Reebok spent a year courting Future.
The relationship began in 2015 when the company started seeding the artist, whose real name is Nayvadius Wilburn, with shoes to wear. Then the team began attending his shows, inviting him to Reebok’s headquarters in Massachusetts and detailing how both parties could help each other.
“They made an effort to connect with him,” said Ebonie Ward, Future’s brand manager. “It wasn’t about sending e-mails. They told him they didn’t want to take advantage of him as an artist and use his fan base. They wanted to build a partnership with him. That’s what sealed the deal with Future. It wasn’t about him throwing on a pair of shoes and thinking people are going to just buy them.”
Athletic companies tapping celebrities, specifically hip-hop artists, isn’t a new concept. In fact, 14 years ago, Reebok offered Jay-Z a deal — the first of its kind — that led to the commercially successful S. Carter sneakers, which, when released, were one of the brand’s best-selling products. But the structure of today’s deals, and the climate around them, has evolved and Future’s relationship with Reebok reflects how the market has shifted.
Future signed with Reebok in 2016 and has played a

Ariana Grande Partners With Reebok for a Yearlong Deal

REEBOK GOES BIG: Following in the sneakers of Gigi Hadid, Ariana Grande is the newest ambassador to join Reebok’s roster.
As part of the yearlong partnership, the pop star will be used primarily for social media purposes. Grande’s massive social media following — 113 million on Instagram alone — was no doubt a selling point with Reebok. One of the first images features her wearing an oversize white sweatshirt emblazoned with Reebok logo and white Reebok sneakers. She was photographed by her favorite lensman Alfredo Flores at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia, during her “Dangerous Woman” tour. (Hadid continues to do her part with 35.7 million Instagram fans.) Grande’s first round of photos, not surprisingly, will be featured prominently on Reebok’s site.
Grande will also be central to Reebok’s global marketing and digital efforts, according to a Reebok spokesman. While there’s no disputing that performing concerts is physically grueling, the four-time Grammy nominee showed a different kind of steeliness in June when she returned to Manchester to perform a benefit concert two weeks after the bombing there that occurred after one of her shows. The fact that she is pictured on her official site’s home page wearing a black eye

New York Fashion Tech Lab Inks Accenture Deal for 2018 Partnership

New York Fashion Tech Lab has signed on Accenture as a partner for the 2018 program.
Springboard Enterprises founded NYFT Lab in 2013 with the support of retailers and fashion brands to help grow women-led emerging tech companies at the intersection of fashion, retail and technology. The company this year completed its fourth annual accelerator program. There’s some funding for the program from Springboard and the Partnership Fund for New York City, but most of the funding is from within the industry. That allows industry sponsors to learn about new tech ideas and work as mentors to further develop the ideas that they are most interested in.
Senior managing director at Accenture Jill Standish, who leads the company’s Retail Industry practice globally, said that with retailers and brands being disrupted by online “pure plays,” she sees Accenture’s role as partner with NYFT Lab to help the 2018 class participants more quickly accelerate their innovations to “better serve and connect consumers to the fashion industry.”
For the 2017 class, founding members J. Crew and Macy’s continued to participate in the program. Returning for the second year as tech partner was Microsoft. Also returning were second and third-year partners Bloomingdale’s and Kohl’s. New this year was
