Fab Flash: Narciso Rodriguez Partners with Liz Claiborne

Cuban designer Narciso Rodriguez has not had a very successful partnership with the Aeffe SpA fashion group, but he has something new to be happy about: his latest (and hopefully more successful) collaboration with Liz Claiborne Inc.

The latter, a $4.99 billion company, is gaining a 50 percent ownership interest in the Narciso Rodriguez name. Liz Claiborne will also form a new company to develop the Narciso Rodriguez brand and Narciso will naturally serve as creative director.

This is the first major apparel collaboration for Liz Claiborne, who also has deals with Juicy Couture, Ellen Tracy, Dana Buchman, Sigrid Olsen and Kate Spade.

I hope this is a loving and fashion forward partnership that will last a long, long time!

There was a really interesting article about all of this in the New York Times -- about how his previous business partner just wasn't working out for him, how he called his friends in the industry to say he was in trouble, and how they helped him find a way out. I think it's VERY interesting what an investment Liz Claiborne (my mom's favorite boring 90s designer) is making in being hip/hot/now. I mean: Tim Gunn, they bought Juicy and Lucky, and now one of my fave designers Narciso.
this will be amazing, if Narciso Rodriguez is a partner of Liz Clairbone, wow, will be great!
