Los Angeles - Casualwear brand XCVI recently just acquired a new label. The chic womenswear brand just acquired Oregon-based label Agave Denim.
In the acquisition, XCVI will be taking over a lot of Agave’s departments. According to WWD, under the new ownership, XCVI will be in charge of Agave’s manufacturing, global distribution, and design for its products excluding Bluer Denim Project. The purchase price of the brand was not disclosed to the public. In addition to purchasing Agave Denim, XCVI has also made different changes in its company this year including a sub-category brand and offering full-package services to clients. However, this recent purchase was a way for XCVI to expand its brands even further.
Agave Denim is a unique brand that is designed in Portland and handcrafted in California. The tailored, specialty jeans are sewn and hand-finished in California. Founded in 2002, Agave Denim currently has a company size under 50 employees. Based now in Washington, the Agave style represents denim that reflects “West Coast Luxury.” Now, as a part of XCVI, Agave will bring its California-influenced styles to the company.
