BURBERRYS SIGNS DIGERONIMO FOR LINE IN JAPAN
NEW YORK — Stephen DiGeronimo is designing a collection for Burberrys Japan of ready-to-wear, sportswear, outerwear, accessories and shoes for fall.
So far, the deal is for Japan only, DiGeronimo said in a telephone interview Friday.
“We’re having some conversations about possible distribution in the U.S., but that’s not sure yet,” he said.
DiGeronimo will continue to design his signature apparel collection, which, he added, “does really well in Japan.” He speculated that was the reason he was chosen to design the Burberrys Japan line.
Burberrys is produced for the Japanese market through a licensing deal with Sanyo Shokai Ltd. Sanyo executives were not available for comment.
