Product will be on shelves and available online in time for the back-to-school shopping season, covering a variety of key categories including apparel, outerwear, headwear, accessories, bags, cosmetics, sleepwear, home décor, plush and pet products.
The Rebecca Bonbon product line was designed to appeal to a broad demographic of tween and teen girls, as well as women who will appreciate both the iconic and fashionable nature of the brand.
