CEO and founder Lolita Healy (pictured above) says she signed up with Jewel because she believes the licensing firm has the right team and approach to help the firm continue its sales and licensing momentum.
“I chose Jewel Branding to represent and guide the brand’s future licensing growth and the timing is perfect with the upward momentum I’ve seen at Lolita,” says Healy. “The brand is about celebrating special occasions, gift giving and delivering joy to millions, with touchpoints to every personality and occasion. My art has global appeal due to its very nature of celebration and recipient art, spending special times with friends and family, and celebrating all those big, little moments that my brand represents.
“There’s not a “moment” that Lolita doesn’t cover (and) therein lies the appeal globally. Jewel Branding, with their female-owned approach, global reach, and amazing reputation is the perfect agency for me…. they get it!”
Healy says the Lolita brand empowers women to celebrate life’s special moments while bringing joy to themselves and others with positive and fun designs. “Whether toasting a major life event or celebrating the everyday, what makes Lolita’s brand so special are the friends gathering or gifting the perfect glass to say cheers together,” she explains. Jewel, a licensing firm whose leadership is dominated by female executives, says they strongly identify with the branding mission of their new partner.
“We are thrilled by the recent signing of the Lolita® brand,” said Carol White, Vice-President of Art Licensing, Jewel Branding & Licensing. “This fun and special moments gift brand, with its distinctive design and “celebrate life” attitude has captured the hearts of consumers around the world. We are excited to bring the Lolita signature style and empowering message to new categories that align with the brand and its loyal audience.”
Lolita was founded in 2004, and has developed its own unique empire of collectible glassware, with over 29 million products sold in more than 40 countries worldwide and over 100,000 active glassware collectors as customers. During the brand’s top year, $22 million was sold in the wholesale marketplace and continues to grow year after year. With Lolita’s exponential growth and popularity, Jewel says the brand is well positioned to expand into multiple categories such as home décor, stationery/crafts, apparel, tabletop, gift, beauty accessories, textiles, and many more.
