With 100 stores and concessions worldwide, this fashion retailer grew sales 57% in 2011, fuelled by new stores in America and an improved website. After narrowly avoiding administration last year, it was acquired from its Icelandic backers and tycoon Kevin Stanford – who retained a 15% stake – by Lion Capital as part of a £105m refinancing deal. The company’s interim chief executive is Pete Wood.
