Randa Accessories has signed a licensing agreement with Itochu Prominent USA and Vince Camuto to manufacture, market, distribute and sell Vince Camuto neckwear in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The designer, who got his start in footwear and expanded into women’s wear in 2009, jumped into men’s last fall and now offers tailored clothing, sportswear, denim, shirts and formalwear produced by licensee Itochu.

“We are [pleased] about adding neckwear, an important addition to the Vince Camuto men’s lifestyle collection,” Camuto said. “Randa Accessories is a best-in-class partner and we believe their team can help deliver on the brand promise of style at an exceptional value.”

“We are proud to play a key role in Vince Camuto’s expansion into the men’s business with the launch of Vince Camuto neckwear,” said David Katz, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Randa Accessories. “The line offers a fresh, modern spin on a classic look that provides great value along with great style. Vince Camuto is an exciting new member in the Randa stable of brands.”

The collection will be targeted to better department and specialty stores as well as online sellers for fall. Prices and design aesthetic have not yet been determined. The long ties will retail for $69.50 and bow ties will be $55.

The designs will include stripes, Art Deco geometric patterns, dots and plaids in saturated colors and combinations such as boysenberry mixed with plum, aqua and turquoise mixed with cobalt and teal with brown.
