Life after lockdown is the new challenge, as we work out how to break those bad habits, get back into exercise and healthy eating, and find the space and time for ourselves to reboot our physical and mental wellbeing.
Leading Irish retailer Kilkenny Design is on hand to help. The launch this week of Revive 2.0 in Kilkenny stores countrywide sees a spectacular new collection of athleisure brands, calming homewares, wellness treats and beauty boosters.
The brand’s newly refurbished Nassau Street store includes a dedicated wellness section, where trained specialists can advise on product selection to nourish the mind, body and spirit.
There is a completely new athleisure offering which features premium Powercut Clothing, including their supremely comfy leggings and tops, Trendy & Bendy high-performance activewear, and Irish designed Jill & Gill leisurewear casuals.
Techmade Smartfit watches and ear buds help get the fitness routine back on track and Flowstate Yoga Mats are the sustainable option for yoga, exercise and meditation, boasting gorgeous designs by Dublin artist Maser to inspire health and happiness.
In the wellness and beauty section of Revive 2.0 at Kilkenny Design, great new Irish brands to look out for include Skingredients from Jennifer Rock, aka the Skin Nerd, and exclusive new additions to Aoibhín Garrihy’s BEO Sleep Well range. The divine Anam Collection by The Handmade Soap Company makes winding down easy, while new luxury candles, diffusers and soaps in the Max Benjamin collection refresh the home and the mind.
Also new is the essential men’s grooming range, Kennedy & Co by Darren Kennedy, and ALISO Beauty by Andrea Roche, a new natural, organic range that includes beautifully textured lip balms and scrubs.
The Revive 2.0 experience is available instore and is also live online at www.kilkennyshop.com, with a plethora of new Irish brands to explore, all in one handy destination. Seasoned favourites such as Jo Browne skincare and beauty, Pestle & Mortar award-winning skincare formulations, and both Voya and Green Angel Irish-made seaweed-based skincare are also worth discovering, and bonus buys and exciting promotional deals add to the motivation to get wellbeing wise!
Social media will be buzzing with the new ranges and exclusive collections at Kilkenny Design too, and Instagram live takeovers during June and July include skincare tutorials by leading specialists, men’s grooming tips from Darren Kennedy, meditation and mindfulness sessions, athleisure styling for your summer staycation, and home-spa and sound sleep tips.
