OLG partners with Francesco Russo

OLG’s is proud to announce that Francesco Russo had signed an exclusive  partnership deal with Onward Luxury Group.

Francesco Russo has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Onward Luxury Group (OLG) for the production and the worldwide distribution of the Brand.

After 20 years designing for Brands including Costume National, Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent, Sergio Rossi and Dior, following an idea of shoes as both architectural object and seduction tools, in September 2013 Russo went solo, launching his eponymous label exclusively available at his Parisian Shop: 8, rue de Valois. The brand is available in 80 wholesale doors worldwide and on line on Net-A-Porter, Matches Fashion and Farfetch.

OLG, the Milan-based branch of the Japanese parent company Onward Holdings LTD, is a leading luxury group specializing in the manufacture and distribution of exclusive designer and contemporary brands with a recognizable positioning in the global high-end segment.

This full licensing deal will allow the designer to focus solely on the creative side of the business by combining Francesco Russo’s expertise and craftsmanship in the shoe design with more than 20 years’ experience and the highest organization and know-how of OLG and his continue search and engagement in the making of hight-end products.

The licensing agreement will allow to accelerate the Brand development and visibility worldwide, thanks to an experienced in-house team and the group’s international showrooms in Milan, Paris, New York and Tokyo.
