TPG Seeks Jimmy Choo Involvement in Bid for Designer, Mail Says

TPG Capital has held talks with designer Jimmy Choo seeking his involvement in a bid for the fashion group he founded, the Mail on Sunday reported, without saying where it obtained the information.

TPG is one of three parties to have made an opening 500 million pound ($825 million) bid for Jimmy Choo Ltd., the newspaper said. Jones Group Inc. (JNY) is thought to have bid as well, the Mail on Sunday said.

Owen Blicksilver, a TPG spokesman, didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail outside of business hours seeking comment.
