a new online subscription service that provides unlimited access to its
women's apparel collection. Powered by CaaStle,
Vince UNFOLD is the first apparel subscription service to be offered by
a retail brand in the advanced contemporary market.

"Vince UNFOLD is an innovative new subscription service that will tap
our existing product assortment to drive incremental revenue while
further advancing awareness of the Vince brand," said Brendan Hoffman,
Chief Executive Officer, Vince. "We believe that subscription services
will play a much greater role in consumer shopping patterns in the near
future and are excited to partner with CaaStle to offer this service."

The new service will provide customers with unlimited access to the
brand's full collection of women's apparel including knitwear, dresses,
outerwear and trousers for one flat monthly fee, with the option to keep
and purchase any favorite items. Vince UNFOLD is priced at $160 per
month for a 4-garment plan and includes free priority shipping,
unlimited exchanges and returns, and complimentary laundering services.

Vince partnered with rental technology platform CaaStle to develop
UNFOLD and will utilize their white glove service to handle all advanced
technology, reverse logistics and managed services for the new
subscription program.

"We're thrilled to partner with Vince to offer the CaaS (Clothing
as a Service) model to their consumers," said Christine Hunsicker,
founder and CEO, CaaStle. "As the first contemporary brand to embrace
our rental platform and services, Vince can more deeply engage current
consumers while also attracting new ones. CaaStle handles all the
customer experience, logistics and technology to allow Vince the
opportunity to create a new, profitable channel that didn't exist
before."
