Carlos Falchi Adds Handbag Licensee

Carlos Falchi IP, owners of the Carlos Falchi luxury fashion brand, has tapped L & Leung Design Group to create a contemporary handbag line.

Brand Matter, which is owned by Sequential Brands Group, is the licensing agent for the Carlos Falchi brand.

Falchi started his career by making hand-stitched leather clothing for musicians such as Miles Davis, Tina Turner and Mick Jagger in the early ’70s. Falchi continues to operate the luxury couture line to this day.

The contemporary collection will draw on Falchi’s classic designs and aesthetic at contemporary pricing, featuring soft leathers sourced from Brazil, skin-inspired textures, animal prints, metallics and bright color ways.

The collection will be available at department and specialty stores in spring 2014.

“Carlos and I are excited to have L & Leung and their energetic and charismatic president, Lisa Nunziata, as our core handbag partner as we launch Carlos into new levels of distribution,” says Maura James, president, Carlos Falchi.
