Symphony Holdings has agreed to cooperate with Itochu to develop the Skins brand of compression garments in mainland China and to work together on design, supply chain management and distribution. Itochu got the rights to the Skins brand for Japan, China, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong eight years ago. It is also the largest minority shareholder in Descente, which has a Chinese joint venture with Symphony for Arena. Itochu sees Skins compression products, sportswear and accessories as a good fit with Arena as well as the Pony brand, which was bought by Symphony in 2006. It plans to expand its product line, appealing to a more mature consumer.
