Staff International SpA, a part of Only The Brave holding company headed by Renzo Rosso, and Marc Jacobs International LLC have announced the exclusive worldwide license agreement for the production and distribution of Marc Jacobs' menswear collections.

The partnership, which has a five-year duration with options to renew, will start with the spring/summer 2010 collection and includes the development and production of the menswear and denim collections under Marc Jacobs’ label, which will be distributed for both retail and wholesale channels through Staff International’s showrooms based in Milan, Paris, Tokyo and New York.

“With this new collaboration we add a precious pearl to our group OTB,” said Rosso. "The Marc Jacobs men's collection has always been my baby so to speak," added Marc Jacobs President Robert Duffy, "and after meeting the people that run and work for Staff International I really believe it's a good fit. We have many divisions, labels and price points in our menswear division and I think they can be of great help in developing all of these projects.”

Staff International’s current licensed brand portfolio includes Diesel Denim Gallery, Dsquared2, Maison Martin Margiela, Sophia Kokosalaki, Viktor & Rolf and Vivienne Westwood. Only The Brave reported revenues in excess of €1.3 billion in 2007.
