Schwartz & Benjamin Teams With Derek Lam

Schwartz & Benjamin has added another big name to its stable.

The New York-based firm has inked a global footwear licensing deal with designer Derek Lam.

The first collection under the new partnership will launch for spring ’13 at the August FFANY show.

“The combination of Derek’s aesthetic and our team’s ability to design, manufacture and distribute designer level footwear will be a winning formula,” said Danny Schwartz, CEO of Schwartz & Benjamin.
