The lifestyle brand is known for its classic American aesthetic, and the debut collection at Debenhams is inspired by the quintessential California road trip.

The range features polo shirts in stripe and check patterns, knee length cargo shots and cotton knits.

Maria Vicari, President of Global Licensing at Nautica said: “The Nautica brand represents a lifestyle that is aspirational and appealing to many.

“We are delighted to collaborate with Debenhams on an exclusive basis to bring the Nautica brand to consumers throughout Ireland with a compelling new offering which complements their current brand mix”.

Nautica will launch in 21 stores nationwide and online in March. The range will be exclusive to the Henry Street store and on www.debenhams.ie
