Fans of Vivienne Westwood will be happy to hear that the groundbreaking British designer has inked a deal to design and produce watches. WWD reports: "The British designer has entered into a worldwide licensing deal with Zeon Ltd., a subsidiary of the Herald Group, to design, market and distribute a collection of men’s and women’s watches under the Vivienne Westwood name. The collection is to launch at Baselworld in March 2011... Retail prices will range from 100 pounds, or $157, to 500 pounds, or $785, and will go on sale for fall 2011. The line will initially roll out to British department and specialty stores, and will later be distributed in Europe, the U.S. and Asia." [WWD]
