Liam Gallagher’s fashion label Pretty Green has been saved from administration by JD Sports with debts of £17.5million. The considerable list of creditors includes some high profile (and rather ironic) fashion names like Oasis and All Saints.
The Company’s debts also include £500 to Oasis Air Conditioning, of Shirley, West Mids and £82,000 to high street store All Saints, to be clear, not his ex-wife’s band All Saints.
Pretty Green was sold this year after it went into administration. Papers filed at Companies House reveal the firm’s creditors also included two window cleaners, owed £870 and £250.
The clothing brand, launched in 2009, specialised in Liam-style parkas and button-down shirts.
Blurb for the range noted that the clothing was designed by the singer himself, with a team of industry pros on board to help out. At the time, Liam made the earth-shattering revelation: “The reason I’m doing it is I like clothes.”
The firm has been bought by JD Sports after 11 stores and 33 concessions were shut down. Only the flagship Manchester branch was kept open. Companies House documents also show that £100,000 was owed to HM Revenue & Customs. Facebook was owed £100,000 and £527,000 was due to a freight company based at Heathrow Airport.
Liam didn’t seem too upset about the sale, tweeting (as he always does), “As long as we’ve got our health eh gotta put things into perspective as you were PG I mean, LG x”.
Shame. I thought it was a cool label. And its offices were next door to my other half’s music law firm.
