Inter Parfums said it would oversee manufacturing, manage existing inventory and develop new products for Gap outlet and Banana Republic factory stores in North America.

Inter Parfums said it would set up a dedicated marketing and product development team for the outlet and factory stores. The new products are scheduled to start reaching stores before the 2006 holiday season.
