Antebi Footwear Group Inks Deal With Kooba

NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Celebrity-adored and editor-coveted accessory brand Kooba has signed a footwear licensing agreement with Antebi Footwear Group (AFG) to launch a signature shoe collection in Fall 2013. The new collection will embrace the Kooba woman, featuring signature styles, attention to detail and distinctive textures that will enable her to express her personal style through contemporary footwear that's as comfort-driven as it is stylish. 

AFG's addition of Kooba to its established brand portfolio, which includes David Tutera Shoe Collection and 2012 LIMA Award nominee Paris Hilton Footwear, further positions Antebi Footwear for growth and leadership in the industry.  Joe Antebi, CEO of Antebi Footwear Group shares, "We've been incredibly strategic in our expansion, looking for the right brands to complement our existing portfolio and drive new opportunities." He continues, "Kooba is an iconic leader in the contemporary accessory realm that perfectly fits our objectives. We could not be more thrilled to align with them in footwear category."

"Since we acquired Kooba two years ago, our fan base has expressed a lot of interest for the brand to branch into footwear," said Abe Chehebar, CEO and president of AHG.  "We have been looking for a great strategic partner to maintain that momentum and help Kooba expand in the category – Antebi was the logical choice to achieve this goal."

Designed for today's contemporary woman, Kooba Footwear will complement her individual style while making a statement. The collection will be produced with luxurious Italian hardware, signature draping and clean, modern lines. The line will retail between $195 - $550 and is expected to be available in the same retail channels as Kooba's core collection, including Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus, as well as online and in select North American boutiques in Fall 2013.
