Popeye was spotted this past weekend in Italy. These photos were taken at the opening of the new Philipp Plein boutique in Porto Chervo at Costa Smeralda (Italy) on August 11, 2013. German designer Philipp Plein celebrated the opening of his newest boutique with Daniele Conti, captain of the Cagliari Calcio soccer team, who attended with several of his teammates, one of whom is wearing a Popeye T-shirt from Phillipp’s new Popeye-inspired collection.
Fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana have teamed up with Popeye for a limited-edition apparel collection released in Spring/Summer 2013 under the D&G brand. T-shirts, sweatshirt and tank tops for adults and kids are now available in boutiques and high-end department stores worldwide. D&G joins a high-profile list of fashion licensees and retailers who have carried Popeye, including Benetton, Bloomingdale’s, Gap, H&M, Miss Sixty and Zara.
This annual international tradeshow kicked off on June 18 and runs through June 20, 2013. More than 400 exhibitors representing more than 5,000 brands and properties, as well as licensing agents from 90+ countries, will attend Licensing Expo 2013.
