After more than 30 years crafting footwear, Stuart Weitzman is venturing into the handbag market.
The designer signed a licensing agreement with Mosaicon SpA, formerly known as Antichi Pellettieri Bags, to design, produce and distribute a handbag and small leather goods collection. The collection will be available early next summer at Stuart Weitzman retail locations, the Weitzman Web site and department and specialty stores worldwide.
