FLORENCE — Salvatore Ferragamo has signed a 13-year license with Timex Group to launch a luxury collection of timepieces.
The line will bow in April at Baselworld, but an initial flash of two or three models will be available in about 80 stores in November. "This is a restyling of existing models and is not yet the full collection, but shows the new speed of the company," said Michele Norsa, Ferragamo's chief executive officer, at the company headquarters here during the men's wear trade exhibition Pitti Uomo.
