Maurizio Distefano Licensing has been appointed to manage the worldwide rights for Italian stylist Filippo Laterza.
MDL will hold global rights for the creative partnership of Laterza and third parties across apparel and accessories for women, men and children. The first partnership unearthed by MDL is for a Laterza collection themed around the movie Angry Birds 2, which is also represented by MDL.
“Filippo Laterza has already made a strong impact on the fashion market and gained the attention of many names in both fashion and licensing,” says Maurizio Distefano, founder and President, MDL.
The collection includes skirts and dresses based around the Angry Birds sequel. Items in the line are now available and can be purchased directly from Filippo Laterza.
Angry Birds 2 is scheduled to be released this summer. The property has previously been used for an airline partnership with airline Neos.
