Kors first partnered with Fossil Group in 2004 to design, develop and distribute watches under the Michael Kors label. The relationship expanded to encompass jewelry in 2010 and the two companies are currently collaborating to grow the men's watch business.
"We are very pleased to continue our partnership with the Fossil Group," says John D. Idol, chairman and chief executive officer, Michael Kors. "Accessories are central to the Michael Kors brand DNA, and we will continue to build on that positioning as we grow globally. Fossil's position as a leader in the global watch market has made them an ideal partner in the design and development of innovative watches and jewelry that capture the sophistication, energy and style of the Michael Kors lifestyle. We have enormous confidence in the future growth of our relationship and the many opportunities that lie ahead.”
