The new agreement now runs until December 31st, 2018 and has been extended to include global distribution. The previous agreement for optical frames covered only the U.S and Canada.

He adds,“We are truly convinced that there is still significant potential to be exploited all over the world with a brand which represents its authentic vintage style in such a comprehensive way. With the aim to further reinforce their collaboration in order to achieve faster growth in the eye-wear category we believe there are important opportunities for development, particularly in EMEA and Latin America, but also in Asia where the brand is already successful.”

Kosta N. Kartsotis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Fossil Group, Inc. commented: “Safilo has been a great partner for us and we are excited to add the sun glass category and expand optical frames to the global market. This licensing agreement will allow us to leverage Safilo’s expertise and distribution to increase our Fossil brand global eye-wear offerings.”
