SP Collection Acquires Luxury Brand Roland Mouret
Arrowpoint Advisory has advised SP Collection in relation to their acquisition of the celebrated women’s luxury designer brand, Roland Mouret.
SP Collection, the new holding company established by Han Chong, has successfully acquired the luxury brand Roland Mouret after it went into administration last month. The brand will join self-portrait, the contemporary fashion house founded by Chong in 2013, in the newly established group that has been set up to discover, nurture, and develop best in class creativity and design.
Han Chong, CEO of SP Collection said: “I am very honoured to have the chance to take this luxury brand on the next stage of its journey. As part of SP Collection, Roland Mouret will benefit from the infrastructure and resources necessary to ensure it can flourish in the coming years. The Roland Mouret brand already has a powerful and respected legacy and I’m excited to see how we can develop it for luxury customers around the world. I am also delighted that Roland himself will be a part of this next chapter.”
The first collection from Roland Mouret in its new form is expected to be Resort 2023. The collection will be presented in June 2022 and available for purchase from November 2022. As part of the acquisition, founder Roland Mouret will take on the new role of Founder and Creative Chair of the brand.
Roland Mouret said: “I have been so impressed by Han’s passion for the Roland Mouret brand and where he feels it can go next. Naturally I am also very happy to be a part of the journey that will allow me to continue celebrating women in all their beautiful guises for years to come.”
The acquisition of the brand consists of its intellectual property assets of 19 RM Limited. Staff and Retail did not form part of the offer.
Han went on to add: “We appreciate the expertise and guidance Arrowpoint Advisory brought to the transaction and thank them for helping us to successfully navigate the acquisition.”
Ian Brown, Managing Director at Arrowpoint Advisory concluded: “It has been a pleasure to work with the self-portrait team on this transaction and help deliver the next exciting step in their journey.”
Simon Cope-Thompson, Managing Director at Arrowpoint Advisory added: “We are thrilled to have been able to work with self-portrait to acquire the Roland Mouret brand. There is a clear strategic fit for the combination of both of these renowned brands within the global luxury womenswear sector.”
