Together at last, British favorite Accessorize is coming together sister brand Monsoon in a newly relaunched website that lets you shop both lines at one, and is offering 10% off your first order, to boot—not too shabby, as far as launches go. Like Accessorize, British apparel brand Monsoon is beloved for its affordable fashion with an ethical philosophy: eco-sustainable design and traditional handicrafts are the foundations of the line. This season, Monsoon offerings include sundresses and tunics for about $100, sherbert colored blouses for around $60, and a new bridal line with dresses ranging from $200 to $400. And there's more where that came from: in addition to the relaunched site, you can expect to see boutiques popping up around the country. According to a press release, plans are in place to open at least 30 Accessorize, Monsoon, and Monsoon Childrenswear stores in the next six months. Above, peep the spring lookbook—which stars a very not-pregnant Alessandra Ambrosio—and pop on over to monsoonusa.com to shop.
