This week we take a look at the opening of a concept clothing store, the launch of a liquid bronzer and the all-new skinscreen – ensuring your skin is looked after as the sunnier months approach. With the gyms reopening, we also bring you a new sustainable athleisure collection so you can get back to the gym in style!
Monsoon Opens Its First New Concept Store
Going back to its roots and celebrating its heritage, Monsoon announces the opening of its news boutique store concept, located in the heart of London. Offering a fresh new store experience to its customers, the store showcases the brand’s commitment to sustainability and ethical trade with a curated collection of organic and sustainable products. From womenswear and childrenswear to homeware, the boutique highlights their progress on a journey to over 70% sustainable fabrics in the next 2 years. And if it couldn’t get any better, the store will donate 10% of the first month’s profits to their charitable Monsoon Accessorize Trust, supporting Asia’s disadvantaged communities with education, healthcare and income-generating projects. If you’re in the area, this store is worth the visit!
This project has been a bright light for us over the past year and represents all the energy and passion that we put into our product and shows the direction for the brand. We are committed to retail, the experience and joy it can bring, and are really excited to see stores reopen, to welcome our customers back and to introduce them to our new boutique.Peter Simon, Monsoon’s founder

Ultra Violette Launch With Skinscreen Range
With all the excitement at the appearance of the sun, we can sometimes neglect our skin by not protecting it from the UV rays but forget no longer with Ultra Violette. After 2 years in the making, Violette is the new leading generation of skinscreen with SPF products that consider other skincare and makeup products. Comfortable enough to wear daily, after your moisturiser, this range ensures protection for your skin every day – that won’t ball underneath foundation (yay!). We will definitely be making sure our skin is protected this summer!
We wanted to design a wardrobe of facial sunscreen that looked good, felt nice to wear, and didn’t bore us to tears. Of all the anti-ageing products available on the market, sunscreen is the single most important one.Ava Matthews, Co-Founder of Ultra Violette
