A NEW fashion retailer is set open up in Buchanan Galleries.

Monki has taken up a unit within the shopping centre in Glasgow City Centre.

The retailer, whose style is described as a unique blend of Scandi-cool and Asian street style, will also open a new store in London.

Lea Rytz Goldman, managing director for Monki, said: "We are delighted to be opening two new stores.

"We love London, but it’s also very exciting to finally be able to offer our stylish Scottish fans the full Monki experience.”

Monki is one of the independent brands in the H&M group and originated in Sweden.

The retailer has 115 stores in Europe and Asia.
