New York - If Emanuel Ungaro hasn't made enough of a name for themselves in the men's wear category, they certainly might now. The brand has begun inking deals with Italian brands in the "premium contemporary" category, and for leather goods. Beginning with the fall 2016 season, Principe SpA will begin producing and distributing men's leather products, with offerings including bags, small leather goods, belts, and gloves throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia, and CIS countries.
Savignano sul Rubicone-based Alea Fashion Industries SpA, will distribute the apparel collection in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Central and South America. Several pieces from the debut spring 2016 collection were presented at Pitti Uomo last month. The fashion includes everything from sartorial suits to sportswear.
Price points for the collection range from 198 to 275 for jackets, 71 to 100 dollars for trousers, 45 to 60 dollars for shirts, and 66 to 100 dollars to sweaters. Both collections will bear the Ungaro label, and will be designed in Paris by the Ungaro studio. While the brand has long been known for their women's ready-to-wear and accessories, they are now getting their hands on the bolstering men's wear market.
