So I can finally tell you the news, since it's officially public:
July 27 (Reuters) - Mall-based women's apparel retailer Bebe Stores Inc (BEBE.O) said it entered into a five-year licensing agreement with Titan Industries Inc to design, manufacture and distribute non-casual footwear for women.
The Brisbane, California-based retailer said the new bebe shoe collection will be sold in bebe stores in the United States and Canada as well as select specialty and department stores worldwide from early spring 2010.
The shoes will be priced in a range from $89 to $169 at retail stores, the company said in a statement.
Titan was created in 1998 for the sole purpose of licensing shoes under the bebe brand, Titan's Chief Executive Joe Ouaknine said.
Yaaaaaa buddies! Bebe is going to back in Department stores! We are very excited at Titan to be back "in bed" with the brand that WE started! Hooray! Something you wont hear anywhere else? The designer is the same designer as our LAMB shoes! Exciting, no??
