Xcel Brands Inc. has inked a licensing deal with B. Robinson for sunwear and eyewear for the Isaac Mizrahi and Isaac Mizrahi New York brands.


The collection is expected to be in retail stores in fall 2012.


Mizrahi said, “Nothing is more ‘instant style’ than the right eyewear. If it’s right, everything else will fall into place. I look forward to working with B. Robinson.”


Cliff Robinson, co-president of B. Robinson Optical, said that the company and Mizrahi have had a ten-year relationship and is “thrilled to have this new partnership with Isaac and his team and for the opportunity to build upon the success we have always had together.”


B. Robinson Optical also does under license the eyewear for Cynthia Rowley, Cole Haan, Izod and London Fog. The firm’s luxury operation, Legacie, includes Judith Leiber Eyewear and Betsey Johnson Eyewear.
