Korea’s Too Cool For School expands across France

South Korean cosmetics brand Too Cool For School is marking the start of a new academic year with a 40-store French expansion in partnership with upmarket retailer Galeries Lafayette.

French retail group Galeries Lafayette, which is especially well known for its flagship store in Paris, has upwards of 50 Galeries Lafayette locations throughout France, and also owns and operates fellow department store Bazar de l’Hôtel de Ville (BHV).

After stocking Too Cool For School goods at its Galeries Lafayette Montpellier and BHV Marais (Paris) stores in 2016, the brand will be made available in 40 stores across the country.
