John Varvatos Enterprises is introducing an extensive collection of leather accessories under the contemporary Star USA brand, furthering the youthful, rock-inspired label’s growth. The new line of bags, belts, bracelets and small leather goods is expected to be a significant main-floor resource for premium department stores, potentially with double-exposure in locations that have Star USA shop-in-shops.
The line is manufactured by licensee Cipriani Accessories, which produces goods for brands including Calvin Klein, Lacoste, Guess and Michael Kors. Varvatos and Cipriani first collaborated in the early Nineties, when Varvatos was a designer at Calvin Klein.
