The Bodywear Office (tBO), the licence holder to Madame SuperTrash, Jenny Packham Intimates and Hackett underwear, has been declared bankrupt, Lingerie Insight has learned.
In an emailed statement to ITP Promedia, the appointed law firm on the case, Houthoff Buruma, said the company was declared in a state of bankruptcy by the district court of Rotterdam, the Netherlands on February 19.
An initial report containing interim information and further developments in the bankruptcy is expected to be published on the Central Insolvency register on March 20, according to Houthoff Buruma secretary Brigitte van de Liet, who spoke to Lingerie Insight on behalf of the trustee.
The news comes just one month after tBO, a full service supply chain company specialising in intimates and swimwear, signed a deal with Jenny Packham to handle the sales and distribution of its Intimates collection.
Lingerie Insight was unable to reach tBO managing director Annique van der Zande for comment.
