Donald Trump’s tie-maker G-III Apparel has reportedly become the latest bidder to buy assets such as Topshop and Dorothy Perkins from Sir Philip Green’s Arcadia Group.

G-III Apparel, which was involved in the Donald J Trump Signature Collection of silk ties, has emerged as a bidder in the auction of Arcadia, The Sunday Telegraph reported.

The New York-based retailer, led by chairman Morris Goldfarb, has joined fellow US retailer Authentic Brands as well as Boohoo and Next in the line-up to purchase Arcadia’s assets.

Green’s Arcadia collapsed into administration back in November 2020, which placed over 12,000 jobs at risk, with administrators at Deloitte now engaged in a search for buyers of its assets.

Deloitte has already struck a deal to sell the womenswear brand Evans to City Chic, an Australian fashion retailer.

Topshop is recognised as Arcadia’s flagship brand, and is expected to fetch more than £200 million from an auction that could conclude as soon as this month.

Last December, fashion retailer Next and Davidson Kempner Capital Management were revealed to be plotting a joint bid to gain control of Arcadia.

Between 30 and 40 potential buyers are believed to have initially shown interest. Deloitte is believed to be working towards a deadline at the end of February.

It remains unclear as to which parties are interested in which parts of the Arcadia empire.
