Collective Licensing International (CLI) announced today (1 April) it has started a three-year agreement with Bioworld Merchandising to licence apparel and accessory lines under the Vision Street Wear brand.

The Vision Street Wear line created by Bioworld will include T-shirts, hoodies and bottoms, as well as headwear, bags, belts and other items and will be sold at boutiques, speciality stores, malls and mid-tier distribution in the US.

"With their extensive experience, Bioworld will be integral to the much-anticipated Vision Street Wear apparel collection debuting this year," said CLI director of brand licensing Dan Brown.

Founded in 1976, Vision Street Wear emerged from the skateboarding fashion explosion of the early 90s.

"Our design expertise coupled with our distribution strength provide the formula to develop an impactful product assortment and bring the Vision Street Wear brand back to its dominant position in the market," said Bioworld Merchandising vice president of licensing Jennifer Staley.

CLI is a unit of Collective Brands and was formed in January 2004.
