Lollipops, a French brand of handbags, shoes and other accessories, has launched its first women's ready-to-wear collection for spring/summer 2012. It is being offered to wholesale clients, but it will also be featured in some of Lollipops' larger stores, such as its flagship on Paris' rue Vielle du Temple or its first British store, recently opened on Neal Street in the Covent Garden district of London. A second store is about to open in another district of the city, followed by one in Casablanca. Founded in 1994, Lollipops had sales of €15 million last year. It has about 25 single-brand stores in France, half of which are franchises, and 87 others elsewhere. Four new ones are set to open in Italy and Spain shortly. It recently bought out its Chinese distributor with its seven Lollipops stores.
