Lenox Partners with Donna Karan for Tabletop and Giftware Collection

Lenox recently announced an exclusive licensing alliance with Donna Karan International (DKI) to create the Donna Karan Lenox tabletop and giftware collection, which will be sold throughout the U.S. and selected international markets.

Under the agreement, Lenox was granted exclusive rights to manufacture, market and distribute the Donna Karan Lenox collection, which will include porcelain and stoneware dinnerware, serving pieces, crystal glassware, flatware, and an assortment of giftware made from glass, metal, ceramic, and wood. The collection will preview during the New York tabletop show October 12-15 and is scheduled for a retail launch in February 2011.

“We are excited about this enormous opportunity with Donna Karan International,” said Glenn De Stefano, president, Donna Karan Lenox division,. “As an American company, we are privileged to be working with one of America’s most iconic fashion designers. Our companies’ collaborative effort has resulted in a tabletop and giftware collection that surpasses our dreams. Together, we’ve been able to achieve an extraordinary level of quality, craftsmanship and design in order to bring to the market a product that we know will deeply resonate with the consumer.”

“There has long been strong demand for tabletop and giftware from Donna Karan. We are very glad to join forces with Lenox, a market leader in the business, to capitalize on it,” said Mark Weber, chairman and CEO, DKI. “Donna Karan Lenox tabletop is a clear reflection of the functional beauty and style sensibility for which our brand is known, and we look forward to bringing it to the market and into consumers’ homes.”
