French lifestyle brand will expand globally with a bed and bath range.
Lagardère Active Group has partnered with India-based Trident Limited to launch an exclusive range of home textiles inspired by the French lifestyle brand Elle Decor, which is related to the fashion magazine, Elle.
The Elle Decor home range will initially include towels, bathrobes and bedsheets in a variety of colors and designs, with a complete range of home décor and furnishings following in the future.
The partnership between Lagardère and Trident was brokered by LicenseWorks.
“We are excited to be working with the Trident Group for our foray into this important category in the Indian market,” says Camille Thelu, deputy director, Lagardère Active Enterprises EMEA and India. “Elle Decor is the reference in the interior design world and the launch of bed and bath products in India is a natural fit.
