The group is a leader in the distribution of children’s fashion in Japan, Italian designs in particular. In 2001 it had a turnover of 1.5 billion yen. The multi-brand store Ma Mère Collections opened in Fall-Winter 2002 at Seibu in Tokyo, stocking sportswear for children with collections by Simonetta Jeans, 1950 I Pinco Pallino, Replay & Sons, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada and Cacharel. In contrast, the four Ma Mère boutiques (2 in Tokyo, 1 in Osaka, and the other in Nagoya) have a more elegant style, carrying lines by Pinco Pallino and Simonetta. D&G Junior is sold at both types of outlet.
