Smiley has revealed a new collaboration with upscale footwear retailer Eram to create a limited edition collection of footwear and accessories to celebrate the anniversaries of both brands in 2017.
The yellow-tinted collection is described as "dedicated to those who celebrate happiness every day of their lives and are looking to share positive vibes."

"Both brands share yellow as their common happy colour and this is the occasion to come up with a very exciting collection created by their incredible design team and a fantastic marketing activation co-created between the teams at Eram and Smiley. We are really happy to work with such professional people who understand how to bring value to their clients by making everything they do absolutely unique."
The footwear collection features a unisex range that will launch in time for back to school 2017. This launch will be supported by an extensive marketing and PR campaign which includes bespoke shop windows, POS, lifestyle imagery, press day and some gift with purchase products to reinforce the campaign at customer touch points.
