ViacomCBS Consumer Products has landed all four paws on a global license agreement for the design, production, and distribution of the first Garfield collection for the Undercolors of Benetton brand.
The agreement includes the launch of the first collection of underwear and pyjamas for both children and adults developed by Benetton in a collection reflective of the firm’s multicoloured philosophy, while channeling the spirit of the incurably lazy, lasagna-loving Garfield.
The collection will be completed with a wide selection of Garfield accessories, including toiletry bags, socks, and slippers.
“We’re thrilled to launch this unique project and collaborate with such a global brand like the Benetton Group,” said Mark Kingston, senior vice president, International Licensing, ViacomCBS Consumer Products. “Garfield is true global icon with a strong transgenerational appeal and we’re confident that this quality collection will not disappoint Garfield fans and Benetton consumers.”
The Garfield collection is now available and will be distributed exclusively in the Benetton retail network, United & Undercolors, in all stores around the world.
