A Privately owned company founded in 1991, M. London's roots began in New York City as a domestic cut and sew factory that manufactured Women's handbags, Men's Briefcases, Backpacks, and various leatherwear accessories for the domestic market.
As the market changed over the years and domestic manufacturing became unaffordable, the founder of M London, Michael Bannout saw an opportunity to expand the business, and shift production overseas to China and India. With that change, the company began to diversify and build on their in house brands, by acquiring branded licenses.
Kenneth Jay Lane, the designer & jewelry house was the first partnership that was formed. The brand was originally known for creating chic high end costume jewelry. M. London paired with the company to create a collection of handbags that enhanced the brand's image and catered to an upscaled customer.
Pepe Jeans was the next addition to the company's portfolio. With a trendy edge and British Heritage, it was known for ties to celebrities and rock and roll. Michael followed the brand's vision by creating shoes, handbags, and accessories that spoke to fashion forward styles that catered to the youth market.
Rocawear and M. London partnered in 2000. The iconic brand was in the early stages of developing Hip Hop apparel, emulating one of the world's most famous rappers, Jay Z, reflecting his personal style. M. London embraced the movement and culture and built the brand image by creating accessories that were at the forefront of the urban market. The partnership lasted through June 2011.
The M. London Group, continues to be a creative licensor and private label manufacturer that specializes in developing trend appropriate, exciting fashion forward accessories. Combining a diversified mix of brand research, cutting edge designs, global sourcing, and streamlined deliveries and distribution, M. London provides trend right product customized to each brand's image and retail strategy. Our success comes from our vast global resource base, and strategic alliances with our licensing partners.
