Fall 2010 will see a brand new collection made exclusively by two iconic brands, Marvel and Airwalk. They have teamed up to bring a full scale collection that consists of apparel, accessories and various other merchandises. Exact details have not yet been released but it is expected that the collection will make full use of the Marvel comics characters and its art works and marrying it to Airwalk’s already established brand in board sports. Stay tuned for more information as they unravel leading up to the latter half of the year.
Collective Licensing International, LLC, owner of Airwalk, a leading global youth lifestyle brand, and Marvel Entertainment, LLC, a global character-based entertainment licensing company, announced the launch of a unique brand collaboration Marvel x Airwalk which will bring together Marvel’s seven decades of character franchises and graphic history with one of the most storied youth culture brands in the world.
A full scale collection of apparel, accessories and other merchandise, featuring a special collaborative Marvel x Airwalk logo, will debut worldwide in the second half of 2010. The Marvel x Airwalk collection will feature a bold aesthetic and graphic design that is inherent in both board sports and comic book art.
President and CEO of Collective Licensing International, Bruce Pettet commented, “As two of the most well-known and authentic brands in youth culture, Marvel and Airwalk have both garnered a great amount of respect and a loyal following throughout the years. We are really excited about this new collaboration and the opportunity to partner with Marvel.”
“Airwalk is a mainstay in the board and action sports world. This collaboration will help expand Marvel’s presence in high end retail stores and overall in the lifestyle category, and the collection will undoubtedly appeal to the influential and trend-setting youth consumer,” said Paul Gitter, President of Consumer Products for North America, Marvel Entertainment.
