Under the terms of the deal, Kurt Geiger — which operates the shoe departments in Harrods, Selfridges and dozens of other major retailers across Europe — will distribute the Vince Camuto, VC Signature and Jessica Simpson brands exclusively in the U.K., Ireland and Germany. The deal, which begins for spring ’13, includes footwear and handbags.
As part of the move, Kurt Geiger, a division of The Jones Group Inc., will also partner with Vince Camuto on the brand’s first retail store, set to bow in central London next spring.
Geiger also will distribute the Camuto brands in Italy, Holland and France, although not exclusively.
