San Francisco—What started with a simple crochet Tightweave handbag under The Sak brand is rapidly turning into a lifestyle company spanning numerous labels and growing classifications.
The company had already introduced artist print rain boots and casual footwear under its sakroots division in recent seasons, not to mention an increasing array of cosmetic cases and tech accessories, but it’s looking further ahead.
The latest introductions are stand-alone footwear collections under The Sak and Elliott Lucca, as well as hats and scarves launched under the sakroots label and retailing for $20 to $25.
Right In Step
Footwear will be a significant push for the company.
“Our footwear collections are fresh, modern and reflect our 20 year brand heritage as a House of Texture,” said Mark Talucci, Co-Founder & CEO of The Sak Brand Group. “As with our bag brands, they appeal to an attitude not an age and are authentically designed with our brand and customer top of mind.”
