Robert Clergerie, the French manufacturer of high-end shoes recently acquired by Li & Fung, has signed a licensing agreement with Sonia Rykiel for the production and distribution of shoes under the name of this French fashion company. The first women's line coming out of the partnership will come out in the spring of 2014. Like Clergerie and Cerruti, Rykiel is a property of Li & Fung through a subsidiary called Fung Brands. Rykiel had been developing its line of women's shoes internally since 1992.
