Milan, 27 March 2018 – Italia Independent has announced a licensing agreement with The Walt Disney Company Italy for the development and distribution of eyewear collections. 

Italia Independent, a fashion and lifestyle brand founded by Lapo Elkann, is pleased to kick off a unique project through which it will enhance its DNA and its philosophy and forge ever further ahead thanks to the immense source of inspiration that Disney represents. 

The first products resulting from the agreement - which includes Disney, Marvel and Lucas Film - will be unveiled in September 2018 on the occasion of the 90th birthday of the iconic Mickey Mouse. With this agreement, Italia Independent will be entering the Disney fashion licensing segment with a product enhanced by that touch of fun, carefreeness and imagination that is the stuff of dreams. 

“I am extremely proud of this union with one of the most important brands in the world, which stems from a common vision and confirms Italia Independent's ability to attract creative and dynamic companies with which we share values.” 

Giovanni Carlino, CEO of Italia Independent.
