First and foremost known for its slate of colorful tees, and then two years ago, the launch of "activewear, cashmere sweaters, dresses and a baby line called Mikey Stars," WWD reports Michael Stars has signed a licensing deal with LA-based Green Tea "to produce handbags, scarves, hats and shoes. An additional optical line will be produced in partnership with Signature Optical."
The collection will range from $28 for a scarf to $85 for sandals to eyewear from $75-$125, and will be sold in Michael Stars shops, along with department stores like Bloomie's and Nordstrom and other specialty boutiques. Fun fact: the brand was founded 22 years ago by Michael Cohen, who originally hails from South Africa.
