Spanish women's wear chain Mango is planning to extend its 'Mango Touch' accessories store concept to France.

Store openings are planned in Cannes and Toulouse while longer-term development will see a further seven accessories boutiques added in locations such as Paris, on the Champs-Élysées, Lyon, Bordeaux, Nantes and Nice. 

Until now, the concept has been limited to stores in Barcelona and Madrid which sell a range of bags, shoes, spectacles, watches and perfumes. Around 20% of Mango's turnover comes from accessories sales.        

Mango already has a 67-strong chain of clothing stores in France and a further eight are set to open this spring.
