MILAN — Malo has embarked on a new project by signing a three-year licensing deal with Svad Dondi to produce and distribute home linens.
The first Malo bed and bath collection will roll out in September to between 300 and 400 points of sale worldwide and to Malo’s 16 stores.
Malo sits under the IT Holding umbrella and is designed by 6267 duo Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi.
Highlights of the new home collection include cotton satin and cashmere sheets and a cotton and cashmere bouclé bathrobe in a variety of colors. The collection also features bedspreads, throws and cushions in varying sizes, and is rounded out with a travel kit that includes a featherlight cashmere plaid throw, a special cushion and a mask. Linens for yachts are also in the works and scheduled to be released in October.
Prices for the collection still haven’t been finalized.
There are plans to present Malo’s homewares at the upcoming Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan with an in-store presentation.
Svad Dondi is a 50-year-old home linen specialist based near Mantova and the licensee for the Blumarine and Blugirl home collections.
