NEW YORK — Dino Valiano, an Italian resort-inspired knitwear collection with a fuller fit, is taking another stab at the U.S. market.
The brand, based in Donauwoerth, Germany, and manufactured by majority owner Gruppo Marlys of Vicenza, Italy, on the outskirts of Venice, has begun showing its spring 2003 collection here and has been reengineered with lighter fabrics. Its objective: a U.S. wholesale volume of at least $2.5 million in the first or second year, with 25 to 35 accounts, primarily upscale specialty stores.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
