The company said it plans to completely outsource production.

Back in August the company has announced second quarter revenue totaling 328.0 million US dollars, and growing by 4.7% over the second quarter of 2017, or by 2.3% on a constant currency basis. This growth was achieved despite the loss of approximately 22 million US dollars due to operating fewer stores and business model changes. E-commerce grew by 23.8%, wholesale grew by 7.2%, and retail comparable store sales increased by 7.1%. READ ALL ABOUT IT HERE
