DNR is reporting that Jack Spade has plans for a new men’s apparel line set to launch for Fall ’09. The Claiborne-owned brother label to the $90 million Kate Spade brand has also tapped former Paul Smith and Original Penguin alum Cuan Hanly as its new vice-president and general manager. Hanly, who has been on board for four weeks, is charged with spearheading the new men’s collection and enhancing Jack Spade’s retail plans. First on Hanly’s to-do list has been the creation of a capsule collection of men’s outerwear, shirts and sweaters for spring 2009. Distribution for the debut is scheduled for Bloomingdale’s, Barneys Co-op and Fred Segal. It will no doubt be polished and simple.
