VANNI – the Italian eyewear designer brand – signs distribution partnership with a new division of Match Eyewear, the superior quality eyewear distributor in the US.
“We are extremely pleased to be joining forces with Match Eyewear’s new company, Design Gallery, to ex-pand our distribution in the US market. Designer eyewear’s appeal to the consumer in America is greater than before, thanks to an increased awareness of its value in terms of style, quality in manufacture and originality,” says Giovanni Vitaloni, VANNI’s President.
Mr. Vitaloni continues, “With Match Eyewear we share the philosophy of promoting a genuine creativ¬ity in eyewear. Through this new company, Design Gallery, we have found in Ethan Goodman and Phil Turnage, the competencies to understand our product, appreciating its technical characteristics and original features together with the understanding of its potential on the market. The US is for our company an important area of growth. We know we can rely on Mr’s Goodman and Turnage, and the dedicated sales force, to deliver excellent customer service and sales support through the entire country. In the next years of co-operation with Design Gallery we want to bring VANNI to become a leading brand in the US designer market segment“.
“Design Gallery brings us into the high end markets and the potential to expand our reach across the US through adding a sales force dedicated to the boutique end of the industry. We will be working closely with Mr. Vitaloni to impart his message and expand Vanni’s distribution, and also support the development of limited editions for the US market,” says Phil Turnage, President of Sales.
“We are excited about our new affiliation, not only to represent the VANNI brand, but with Giovanni Vi¬taloni, an extremely creative designer whose genuine approach to fashion, from start to finish, makes his collection the Flagship of Italy. We look forward to many positive benefits for both our companies over the coming years”, says Match CEO, Jonathan Pratt.
