MILAN — Italian eyewear powerhouse Marcolin Group and luxury fashion company Ermenegildo Zegna Group have signed ten-year licensing agreements for the worldwide manufacture and distribution of sunglasses and eyeglasses for the Ermenegildo Zegna and Agnona brands.
The deal marks the debut of Agnona in the luxury eyewear arena, and a new path for Zegna, which had previously produced its eyewear with De Rigo Vision SpA. Zegna creative director Stefano Pilati and Marcolin’s design teams are now working together to develop the lines.
