Fashion watch leader E. Gluck Corporation will be exhibiting its new Steve Madden watch and wearable tech collections at the Tax Free World Exhibition & Conference in Cannes this year for distribution in the duty free and travel retail channels.
The company is a leader in the global watch industry for over 65 years producing fashion watch brands such as Anne Klein, Armitron and Torgoen, as well as the Steve Madden brand.
Inspired by rock and roll and his New York roots, Steve Madden has spent over three decades providing on-trend individuals with an outlet to express their individuality. Innovative, daring, and inspiring are just a few words that come to mind when thinking of the brand’s mark on fashion and modern street style, says the company.
With millions of customers worldwide, the Steve Madden design universe is a fertile jumping off point for watches and wearable tech accessories.
Rob Robertaccio, SVP of Global & Travel Retail Sales, remarked: “We are thrilled to bring a fashion power player like Steve Madden to Duty Free and Travel Retail. 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 has received an overwhelmingly positive response to its Steve Madden collections and has already shipped to 10 countries worldwide. Wearables retail for $35-70 USRP, and the watches range from $55-150 USRP.
“Given the early positive reactions we have received,” said Robertaccio, “we expect this category to be a hit in Duty Free and Travel Retail.”
E. Gluck will be exhibiting Steve Madden’s one-of-a-kind watch and wearable tech accessory offerings at the TFWA Tax Free World Exhibition & Conference in Cannes at booth Blue Village F-15.
