Dressed for the big time

A North Yorkshire retailer will rival Harrods and Harvey Nichols in being one of the few stores to stock the luxury Italian clothes brand Armani Collezioni. Harrogate menswear firm Sudo Attire won the contract following a number of other other licensing deals, including Karl Lagerfeld, William Hunt of Savile Row and Carol Visconti.

Customers will be able to purchase the collection online as the shop has launched a website at www.sudoattire.co.uk
