The Marcolin Group has announced the signing of an exclusive, global license agreement with Bally, the Swiss high-end producer of leathergoods whose eyewear was previously licensed by L'Amy. The contract with Marcolin will take effect in early 2019 and last for an initial period of five years, with an option to get it renewed for a further four years. A preview of Marcolin's first Bally collection will be launched in Asia, where the Bally brand enjoys a strong demand, before extending the distribution to the rest of the world. Bally was bought last February by a Chinese conglomerate, Shandong Ruyi.
