Steven Alan Renews Eponym Licensing Agreement
"Steven Alan has renewed its eyewear licensing agreement with Eponym, to design, produce and distribute its optical and sunglass designs through March 2021," according to WWD. "The brand first launched its eyewear program in partnership with Eponym in 2013. The label says that its eyewear sales have doubled each year throughout their initial three-year contract. In 2015, Eponym opened two Steven Alan Optical brick-and-mortar units in New York. As part of this renewed agreement, Eponym has agreed to open between five and 10 more stores in the next five years. The first in this grouping will be a West Village location in Manhattan, to open in April." Read more.
