Iconix Brand Group taps AHQ for London Fog handbags

Accessory Headquarters has been tasked with the design, manufacture and distribution of a collection of London Fog handbags under a new three-year licensing agreement brokered by Iconix Brand Group.

AHQ has been selected as the handbag licensee for the US, the UK and the United Arab Emirates, with the first London Fog collection primed to land at retail this Christmas.

“London Fog is an iconic American brand and a great addition to our portfolio,” said Abe Chehebar, chief executive officer of Accessory Headquarters. “We’re excited to work with Iconix Brand Group to further develop the London Fog handbag business.”

Bob Galvin, chief executive officer and president at Iconix Brand Group, added: “We chose to partner London Fog with Accessory Headquarters because of their deep expertise and capabilities in the handbag category. We look forward to collaborating with Accessory Headquarters on growing London Fog’s handbag offering.”

London Fog’s current retail distribution includes Nordstrom, Macy’s and Belk, among others. In addition to handbags, other key product categories for the brand include outerwear, luggage, footwear and umbrellas.

Earlier this year, the brand introduced a collaboration with designer Jeremy Scott, whose designs fuse references from pop culture, high fashion and streetwear. The London Fog x Jeremy Scott capsule collection features Scott’s bold and edgy twist on classic London Fog pieces across multiple categories.

London Fog is one of almost 30 consumer brands owned by Iconix Brand Group, Inc. The brand management company owns, licenses and markets its brands through a network of leading retailers and manufacturers that touch every major segment of retail distribution in the US and worldwide.
