The number of stores carrying the Emilio Pucci eyewear collection, licensed to Marchon since last year, is set to grow in Italy to 80 by the end of the year from 30 currently. The high-end line of sunglasses has also started to sell in premium U.S. stores like Nordstrom in New York. Ultimately, the line should be available in about 600 stores in Italy and a similar number in the USA. LVMH, which owns the Pucci brand, signed a licensing agreement with Marchon last year to produce sunglasses and prescription frames with a retail price range of €300-700. The present collection of 17 styles of sunglasses will soon be widened to 22 styles. In April, the company will present the first 18 prescription frames.
