Donna Karan licenses Porcelain, Chrystal, Flatware

Early on, Donna Karan wanted to design and market everything herself. That failed, like the IPO and the brand was acquired by LVMH. They took the brand back to its roots and had quite a tough time.

Now Donna Karan has licensed Lenox to launch a tabletop and gift-ware collection. In fall 2011 product will be available in the U.S. and international markets.

The line will include porcelain and stoneware dinnerware, serving pieces, crystal glassware and flatware, as well as giftware produced from glass, metal, ceramic and wood.

Prices will range from $25 to $3,000 at retail.
