Kering Eyewear and Safilo on Friday announced the renewal of their agreement for the manufacturing and supply of Gucci-branded products.
The three-year partnership will come into effect starting January 2021, providing complete continuity to the previous contract expiring December 2020.
The decision follows a three-year collaboration during which the two groups have formed a trustworthy partnership, leveraging Safilo’s top-tier service, unparalleled product quality and unique craftsmanship capabilities, all key elements for Kering Eyewear.
Kering Eyewear and Safilo have always been attentive to their social responsibility role and share a common vision to work to preserve the Italian eyewear-manufacturing district.
The long-term partnership builds on Safilo’s product expertise, established over its 85-year history, and confirms both companies’ commitment to the territory and to Made in Italy production.
