New York —
Fashion brand marketing firm Brand Matter, owner of the Ellen Tracy design house brand, has entered a licensing agreement with Olivet International for all stylea of luggage, part of the company's strategy to expand the brand beyond its apparel orientation.
The Ellen Tracy brand will likely see an extension into home textiles product categories, the company said.
"Brand Matter is committed to developing best-in-class partners for our portfolio of brands. As our first Ellen Tracy non-apparel license, it was important to find a company that understands the essence of the brand, and Olivet proved to us that they do," said Rick Platt, Brand Matter president.
"We will be very protective of our brand as we venture outside of apparel," added Mark Mendelson, ceo of Ellen Tracy.

I think it's great you are expanding but you should really concentrate on the quality and style of the clothing line which has gone greatly down hill. I always wore Ellen Tracy in the past but cannot justify what is being designed now and the fabrics that are being used. It's truely a shame.
