Safilo Group, worldwide leader in the premium eyewear sector and world renowned designer Marc Jacobs (Marc Jacobs International, LLC), announce the early renewal of their licensing agreement for the design, manufacture and worldwide distribution of Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs branded optical frames and sunglasses collections. The new agreement will now run until December 31st, 2024.
Robert Duffy, Vice Chairman and President of Marc Jacobs International spoke on behalf of himself and designer Marc Jacobs, “We have both really enjoyed collaborating with Safilo over the years. They have been a great partner, which is not always the case with licensees. We respect the effort they put into the quality of the finished product and they aren’t afraid to take the risk when we experiment with design. Safilo has been especially helpful in launching the Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses and optical collections. For all of the above we are grateful. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. We plan on doing this for a long time to come.”
