Elie Tahari is expanding in accessories.

The ready-to-wear firm has formed a partnership with Max Leather Group to manufacture Elie Tahari and Tahari belt collections, set to launch for fall 2008.

The belts will retail from $125 to $275.

"The Elie Tahari brand is a terrific addition to our luxury division and we look forward to working closely with Elie Tahari," Jarrod Kahn, chairman and chief executive officer of Max Leather Group, said in a statement.

Elie Tahari has also signed Accessory Network Group to manufacture and distribute a modestly priced collection of handbags under the Tahari label. Also bowing next fall, the pieces will be sold at many of the same retailers that distribute Tahari clothing. Retail prices range from $130 to $275.

"We are pleased to add a fine brand like Tahari to our roster of nationally recognized designer brands," said Abe Chehebar, chairman and ceo of Accessory Network Group.

Elie Tahari operates in more than 600 stores in the U.S. and maintains a presence on five continents. The brand also has freestanding boutiques in major cities including New York, Boston and Atlanta.

"I am confident that these ventures will further strengthen the growing appeal of our women's accessories," Elie Tahari, chairman and ceo, said in a statement.
