NEW YORK—Mondottica and WestGroupe have announced a distribution agreement to introduce AllSaints Eyewear to the North American market. Under this strategic collaboration and partnership, Mondottica will leverage its expertise in design and production, while WestGroupe will utilize its network and market insights to expand the reach of AllSaints Eyewear, the announcement stated. This is the first eyewear license from the British brand known for its independent, rock’n’roll spirit. “We are thrilled to partner with Mondottica and to add AllSaints to the WestGroupe brand portfolio," said Beverly Suliteanu, VP of product development for WestGroupe.

"The brand's DNA and its edgy, unique aesthetic will complement rather than compete with our current brands, providing our customers with a fresh, cutting-edge fashion brand.”

The inaugural optical collection features 18 bold gender-neutral styles with details including eco-conscious Acetate Renew, bespoke branded hinges, stylish beveling and metal detailing, the announcement noted. To reinforce the brand’s DNA, hexagon bolt-shaped studs on the temples and hinges as well as custom integrated end-pieces are adorned with the AllSaints logo plaque in the brand’s classic distressed metal finish. The debut of AllSaints Eyewear in Canada is set for Summer 2024, followed by the anticipated U.S. launch in the first quarter of 2025.

“The addition of AllSaints Eyewear underscores our dedication to offering diverse and high-quality eyewear options to the North American market," said president Michael Suliteanu. "We look forward to the success that this partnership will bring.”

“We are thrilled to partner with WestGroupe to bring AllSaints Eyewear to North America," added Tony Pessok, CEO of Mondottica. "With our shared commitment to quality and innovation, we are confident that this collaboration will drive growth and success.”

AllSaints was founded in 1994 by couple Stuart Trevor and Kait Bolangaro, who named the company after "All Saints" road in Notting Hill, London. Since 2011, AllSaints has been owned by Lion Capital. In 2018, after working for the brand for over 12 years, Peter Wood stepped into the role of CEO.

AllSaints has a global team of over 2,000 employees across more than 27 countries and around 250 global stores, including franchise partnerships and pop-ups, a 360 digital presence and over 50 brand business partners, reaching customers in over 150 countries.
