Apparel maker Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation has signed four new licensees - three for its fast-growing Izod brand and one for its Van Heusen line.

 MZ Berger & Co has been licensed to design, produce and market men's, women's and unisex watches and timepieces under the Izod brand.

Accessory Network Group, which holds the license from PVH's Calvin Klein Inc subsidiary for women's handbags and accessories under the Calvin Klein and ck brands, has been granted a license for Izod handbags and accessories.

And SG Footwear, Izod's slipper licensee, will also supply Izod beach footwear for both men and women.

Each of the licenses covers the United States and Canada, and the new product lines will be launched in Holiday 2007 and spring 2008.

The sports-inspired Izod brand is carried in better department and specialty stores and, measured by unit sales, was the second largest sportswear brand in US department stores in 2006.

Separately, the New York based company said it has also licensed Randa Accessories to design, manufacture and market men's and boys' accessories under the Van Heusen brand in the US and Mexico.

The agreement covers belts, wallets, small leather goods and small gift items which will be distributed in better department stores.

Randa is also PVH's domestic licensee for Van Heusen neckwear and the licensee for belts and small leather goods under its Izod brand.
