Smiley has also recently debuted the Smiley x Centre Pompidou exclusive collection in stores, adding a distinctive artistic flair. Centre Pompidou is home to the national museum of Model Art in France, internationally renowned for its 20th and 21st century art collections.

Smiley Fashion Stores are located in cities such as GuangZhou, SuZhou and Xiamen. Smiley plans to continue to expand its footprints across China, aiming for a total of 15 stores by the end of this year. In the coming three years, Smiley intends to expand to 50 stores, reaching more cities and a broader audience.

“We are thrilled to open our doors in China and share our passion for fashion with our beloved customers,” says Nicolas Loufrani, chief executive officer, Smiley. “China is a vibrant and dynamic market; we look forward to becoming a part of its thriving fashion community. Our goal is to provide an exceptional shopping experience that combines the latest trends with outstanding customer service.”

Spearheading the China stores expansion is the FIPO Group, which has worked with the brand for the last five years. Renowned for its success in managing Smiley Fashion, FIPO Group brings extensive experience and expertise to the partnership.

In addition to China's newest store development, Smiley has announced its footprints will be extended to other Asian countries this November, marking another significant milestone to its global expansion strategy.
