In partnership with Global Design Concepts, footwear manufacturer Skechers has announced it will design a new line of bags for men, women and children.
The collection - which is slated to hit stores this fall - will include backpacks, laptop carriers and messenger bags. The designs will be made of durable materials and feature the Skechers logo.
This is not the first time the shoe brand has explored other markets, as the company has launched partnerships in the past to create new lines of children's apparel, sunglasses, legwear, medical scrubs and leather accessories.
Company officials say that they chose to work with Global Design Concepts for the signature flair included in their designs.
"Combine that with a passion for innovation and great grasp of our brand DNA, and it's clear why they represent a welcome addition to our growing portfolio of high quality licensees," said Paul Flett, senior vice president of licensing at Skechers.
The bag collection will be sold at department, specialty, sporting goods and general athletic footwear stores across the U.S. and Canada.
