Miss Sixty is closing half its American stores—the company announced today that it would close 10 of its remaining 20 stores in the United States. In 2008, the company lost $28.6 million in the USA, and in 2009 Miss Sixty closed two stores—in Honolulu and Dallas. The brand has not shown at New York fashion week since spring 2008. So far this year, the Miss Sixty stores in Union Square in San Francisco has closed along with two stores in Manhattan—in the Flatiron Building and in Soho—the location at Caesers Palace in Las Vegas, in Georgetown, Washington, D.C., and an outlet in Philadelphia.
