Apparel and accessories maker Polo Ralph Lauren said Tuesday its Club Monaco unit entered into a long-term licensing agreement with a U.S. subsidiary of Italian eyewear maker Luxottica Group SpA to
create prescription frames and sunglasses under the Club Monaco brand. The glasses will be available in the summer of 2007 in the U.S. and Canada. Polo Ralph Lauren signed a deal with Luxottica in
February to create eyewear under its own name. The agreement is effective Jan. 1 and the new collection will be available in early 2007.
