Michael Kors Holdings has partnered with Luxottica Group for Michael Kors Collection and MICHAEL Michael Kors eyewear.
The 10-year deal will see Luxottica produce eyewear for both brands beginning with a spring 2015 collection that will launch in January.
The two collections will be carried around the world in Michael Kors stores, department stores, select travel retail locations, independent optical locations and Luxottica’s retail stores.
“We have achieved great success in the eyewear business and believe that our new partnership will further enhance our luxury image in the optical and sunglass marketplace,” says John D. Idol, chief executive officer, Michael Kors. “Our eyewear business is an important component of the overall growth strategy as we continue our expansion around the world.”
