Perry Ellis International and Morel S.A. collaborate to expand luggage and travel accessory collection in international markets

MIAMI, 2017-Feb-01 — /EPR Retail News/ — Perry Ellis International announced today (Jan. 31, 2017) that it has entered into a license agreement with Morel S.A. to design and distribute men’s and women’s luggage, travel bags and back packs under the Perry Ellis® trademark in Central America, South America and the Caribbean.  The collection will be distributed in department stores and upscale specialty stores with a product launch in Fall 2017.

As a designer, Perry Ellis played with fashion convention simply by not taking it so seriously. Following only what felt right. In doing so, he redefined the fashion industry. Today, this philosophy continues to inspire the Perry Ellis brand which offers modern style with versatile trend right looks that reflect the way people want to work, play and live today.

“We are pleased to partner with Morel S.A. and believe this collaboration aligns with our strategic initiatives to expand the Perry Ellis brand in international markets,” commented George Feldenkreis, Executive Chairman of Perry Ellis International.
