Pepe Jeans London recently inked a deal for New York-based accessories maker M. London to produce women’s, men’s and children’s handbags, small leather goods, backpacks and belts. It is the brand’s first licensing deal.

The products are to ship for holiday retailing. Women’s accessories will wholesale from $15 to $50, with children’s products wholesaling at $8 to $20. M. London produces goods in Asia, and imports some pieces and components from Italy, Spain and South America. The accessories will be sold out of Pepe Jeans London’s showroom on Broadway.

Revenues for the licensed products are expected to hit the $15 million mark, according to a spokeswoman for the brand.

“Our outerwear and footwear sales have exceeded our expectations and only solidified our expansion into the accessories category,” Mike Jebara, president and chief executive of Pepe Jeans London, said in a statement.

The company launched outerwear and footwear, produced in-house, a few years ago, according to the spokeswoman.
