Speaking about the partnership, founder and managing director of Reiss, Mr. David Reiss said, “India is an exciting new market for the brand and one that we feel will embrace and understand the benefits of the luxury bridge experience.”
The franchise agreement with Reiss will add to the current partnership portfolio of Reliance, which includes Brooks Bros, Diesel, Ermenegildo Zegna, Hamleys, Iconix, Kenneth Cole, Paul & Shark, Quiksilver, Roxy, Steve Madden, Thomas Pink, Superdry, Dune and Timberland.
