PARIS — After introducing footwear and leather goods in 2016, SMCP Group — bolstered by its new owner, China’s Shandong Ruyi Group — is stepping into the eyewear arena. The company has signed a six-year licensing agreement with Mondottica for optical frames and sunglasses for its Sandro and Maje brands.
The first six collections — including men’s and women’s frames for Sandro, and women’s frames for Maje — will launch in the fall. A selection of frames will be unveiled at the Mido eyewear fair in Milan later this month, with the full collection to be presented at Silmo in Paris in October.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
