We all love it when our fave brands come out with something new, but when it’s an entire collection, it’s even better.

After all, you get not just one, but a whole range of products to choose from.

We’ve rounded up the best specially curated edits, new product ranges, and innovative launches for your shopping pleasure.

Keep reading to discover everything from fundraising t-shirts to oh-so-delicate florals.

Albaray edit

Putting ethical into stylish easy wear

Look out for new ethical fashion label Albaray, born out of the pandemic.

The leading women behind clothing brand Warehouse have created a compact edit of effortless style staples from statement dresses and broderie anglaise blouses to everyday leisurewear, with a focus on sustainable production.

The Albaray team’s favourites include the yellow spot dress, £79, the black-and-white gingham midi dress (with pockets!), £79, and the polka-dot frill-collar blouse, £55, which is perfect with denim shorts.

Shop the collection at John Lewis and Next. Check out the full collection at albaray.co.uk.

Essie Expressie collection

Polish up your nail game now

No one likes to wait for paint to dry — especially when it’s on your nails. Essie’s new Expressie Collection not only dries in a flash, but the helpfully angled brush makes application a breeze too.

Bold colours are trending and we predict the Crave The Chaos vibrant 1980s-style fuschia shade will be big this year.

Shop the collection for £7.99 each at boots.co.uk.

Goodmist hand sanitisers

As we start to venture out and about, and can finally hit the shops again, it’s time to improve your hand sanitising.

Goodmist is a range of four refillable sanitiser sprays that are non-sticky and gently scented — and with an 80% alcohol content they are reliably effective. We love the Citrus — mandarin, bergamot and verbena — but there’s Fresh, Fruity and Floral too.

£12.99 for a 100ml bottle with a free 10ml bamboo pocket-size mister.

Check out the full collection at goodmist.co.

Sugarhill Brighton Wear And Care

Doing your bit for chari-tee

Sugarhill Brighton’s Wear And Care is an easy way to feel good about shopping as £5 from each product goes to charity.

We love the Maggie range of tees — buy the Sunshine T-shirt for £29 and a fiver is donated to Plan International, while the Love Rays tee, £29, will commit £5 to the Rainbow Trust.

Pressed flower jewellery collection

Spring back in floral style

The latest lockdown trend? Flower pressing.

Luckily, while we’ve been busy dreaming of shopping again, Oliver Bonas has been setting real pressed flowers in resin to create the prettiest jewellery.

The Flower Inlay Heart Pendant Necklace, £26, and the Meadow Trapped Flowers Resin Bangle, £26, are our top picks.
