Kohls Not Separating From J-Lo Clothing Brand

7/19/11 – The Wisconsin-based Kohl’s Department Store chain says it will not be hurt by the Jennifer Lopez-Marc Anthony divorce. The Menomonee Falls company still plans to launch men’s-and-women’s clothing lines in September with each celebrity’s name. Kohl’s vice president Vicki Shamion said the Lopez and Anthony brands were always meant to be two separate, distinctive contemporary fashion collections. And they still look forward to launching the new lines. Lopez announced the couple’s break-up last Friday. Kohl’s C-E-O Kevin Mansell had said the celebrity launch would the biggest in his company’s history – and it marked the first time a big-name couple has tied their names to retail clothing lines.
