Via Spiga wants its customers to feel modern, urban and edgy in its shoes — and now they can carry that attitude around.
The footwear company, owned by the $2.4 billion St. Louis-based Brown Shoe Co. Inc., is relaunching handbags for fall. The 23-year-old New York-based brand had a handbag license with Accessory Exchange, but after a yearlong hiatus it has signed a new license with Wathne Ltd., the Manhattan-based accessories manufacturer. Brown Shoe acquired Via Spiga, the American accessories brand known for its Italian flair, in 2005 when it took over Bennett Footwear Group.
