Valentino moves eyewear license

The eyewear market for brand licenses remains turbulent.
After Ferragamo and Lacoste, now Valentino is moving its eyewear to the same licensee. As of January 2012 Marchon will hold the license. Marchon also holds brands like Jil Sander, Michael Kors, Diesel, Nike, etc.

Until now the Ferragamo license had been with Safilo Group.


Valentino Perfume moving too

The perfume license of Valentino has moved as well.

The prestigious brand was one of the core licenses of powerhouse P&G. A while ago P&G entered the arena of luxury business and the Valentino brand was vital in that move.

Now the license is held by the licensee, who also holds perfume licenses from Prada, Paco Rabanne, Nina Ricci, Carolina Herrera and others.
