Liz Clairborne Inc., the holding company to fashion and lifestyle
brands Juicy Couture, Kate Spade and Lucky Brand, has officially changing its name to Fifth & Pacific Companies.
As of this week, Fifth & Pacific Companies will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol ‘FNP’, as part of a move announced earlier this year to focus on its growing global lifestyle brands. In addition, the new name also reflects the sale of the Liz Claiborne namesake brand to J.C. Penney Corporation, Inc.
