Change is afoot at Harbor Footwear Group. The Port Washington, NY company has signed a multi-year licensing agreement to produce men’s and boys’ shoes for the Mark Ecko Cut & Sew line with Iconix Brand Group, as well as another to sell and distribute men’s, women’s and kids’ footwear under the Ccilu brand.
Both licenses will launch in Spring ’15. Retailing from $150 to $200, the Mark Ecko line will be a curated collection of shoes reflecting the brand’s DNA as laid out by Ecko himself and distribution will be targeted nationwide to leading department stores and better retailers where Harbor Footwear Group’s current brands are sold. Meanwhile, the spring collection of Ccilu is set to retail from $30 to $70 with a distribution geared to specialty retailers nationwide. “The industry has been clamoring for newness for quite some time and Ccilu is truly different from everything else out there,” says Jason Lazar, chief operating officer of Harbor Footwear Group.
