PHILOSOPHY: “We are thrilled by the appointments of Isaac Mizrahi and John Bartlett as creative directors of the Liz Claiborne and Claiborne brands. Both clothing relaunches for Spring ’09 have received rave reviews from retailers and press alike. We expect there to be an even stronger interest in both of these important eyewear collections as a result,” says Dick Russo, Sàfilo USA executive vice president.
Merchandising materials include a 12-place display with new branding elements, countercards, mirror and logo plaque for Liz Claiborne and a six-place display and logo plaque for Claiborne.
