For example, pictured is one of their new ad campaigns which shows CEO Dov Charney in bed with the company's creative directors. The brand has also managed to renegotiate it's deal with Lion Capital meaning that they don't have to file for bankruptcy. Charney commented,
"Retail is hard right now. I’m not alone in this. You have to work for every dollar, you have to work on the merchandise, make sure the product mix is perfect and the allocation is right. It’s a tough market right now."
