Sandys.Ht is a new high-end line of casualwear for men and women with technical features launched by the family of Sergio Tacchini, the former Italian tennis champion whose eponymous activewear brand was taken over by one of its Chinese contractors, Billy Ngok, in 2008. The new project starts with the next autumn/winter season and is not aimed at sporting goods retailers, but rather at fashion stores and department stores. Alessandro Tacchini, Sergio's 45-year-old son, is running it through the family company, Sandys, out of an office in Novara. Along with some other former collaborators, Lorena Bacchetta acts as director of operations. The line has agents all over Italy and in many other European markets. It is produced for the most part in Turkey and the Far East.
