Fausto Puglisi has signed a licensing agreement for the production of his namesake fashion brand with Italian manufacturing company Factory srl. The brand’s women’s collections were previously produced by Gilmar.
The first fruits of the collaboration between the two companies will be unveiled in Florence on June 15, when Puglisi will present his resort 2017 lineup, along with his first men’s capsule, also produced by Factory, during the upcoming edition of Pitti Uomo.
Established in 2008 in Fucecchio — a stone’s throw from Florence — Factory srl, which closed 2015 with revenues of 45 million euros, or $49.5 million at average exchange rate, also manufactures Drome‘s women’s collections and men’s wear for Neil Barrett.
Starting with the resort season, the Fausto Puglisi brand will also debut a new distribution network — Milan’s Riccardo Grassi Showroom will manage international sales, except for the U.S. market, which will be handled in New York by CD Network.
Last April, Fausto Puglisi opened its first flagship, located on Milan’s Via della Spiga.
