Philip Day in the running for LK Bennett
Much as anticipated, Philip Day is pursuing an acquisition of the LK Bennett brand. If successful it would be a logical addition to his portfolio which includes other mid-market brands like Jaeger and Austin Reed. Day will face strong competition as other parties bidding include the Dune Group and Byland UK, a new business established by Rebecca Feng in collaboration with former LK Bennett CEO Darren Topp. Sports Direct is also understood to have expressed an interest.
