E. Gluck Corporation has announced that it is now offering fashion watches and wearable tech accessories from Steve Madden to duty free and travel retail.
The company plans to exhibit the Steve Madden offerings at in-person events, including the upcoming TFWA World Exhibition & Conference in Cannes (2-6 October, 2022) at its stand in the Blue Village (F-15).
“We are thrilled to bring a fashion power player like Steve Madden to duty free and travel retail,” said Rob Robertaccio, SVP of Global & Travel Retail Sales for E. Gluck Corporation, which has been active in the global watch industry for over 65 years and makes fashion watch brands such as Anne Klein, Armitron and Torgoen,
“The Steve Madden brand allows us to further engage our trend and fashion customer with high quality, on-trend pieces across several categories, including fashion watches, wearables, hearables, and more.”
E. Gluck says it has already received an “overwhelmingly positive response” to its Steve Madden collections, which have already been shipped to 10 countries worldwide.
“Given the early positive reactions we have received, we expect this category to be a hit in duty free and travel retail,” added Robertaccio.
Inspired by rock and roll and his New York roots, American fashion designer and businessman Steve Madden launched his eponymous brand in 1990 with a vision to provide on-trend individuals with a way to express their individuality with his ‘innovative, daring, and inspiring’ fashion and accessories.
Today, the Steve Madden brand encompasses footwear, handbags and accessories and is available in over 80 countries worldwide.
Wearables retail for $35-70 USRP, and the watch collection ranges from $55-150 USRP.
