NEW YORK — Luxe denim company 7 for All Mankind is branching out into shoes again and has teamed up with Schwartz & Benjamin to license footwear for the brand.
The new collaboration includes five new women’s styles for spring ’09, which will be available exclusively at 7 for All Mankind stores. A full footwear collection will hit for fall ’09.
The fall and subsequent collections will include all categories of women’s footwear and will be sold at specialty boutiques and luxe department stores, in addition to the brand’s retail shops.
“Our team is very enthusiastic about our new partnership with 7 for All Mankind,” Daniel Schwartz, president and CEO of Schwartz & Benjamin, said in a statement. “Seven is a very cool and modern brand with great products and a distinctive point of view. We are looking forward to building an amazing business together.”
Schwartz & Benjamin also licenses footwear for Juicy Couture, Kate Spade, Diane Von Furstenberg and Michael Kors.
This is 7 for All Mankind’s second push into footwear. Its first line launched in 2006 under the now-defunct Global Brand Marketing Inc.
