Fast Retailing has invested in J Brand and is now planning to open a flagship in LA next year before expanding to other cities. The brand is expanding the realms of men's RTW, women's handbags and shoes. Fast Retailing, which owns Theory and Uniqlo has a variety of production resources and could potentially make the cost of J Brand more accessible. [Racked]
