Revival Retro launches new website

April 30, 2015

Hello all,

As you can see we have launched a brand new website with lots of extra functionality and improved navigation. We hope you like it!

At Revival we continually strive to meet and exceed our customers expectations. If you have ever visited our shop and benefitted from our amazing in store service then you know that we always go the extra mile! We knew that our old website just wasn't delivering the level of service that we wanted it to and we've been planning and developing the new site for some time.


  • We hope that our gallery of excellent product photography combined with the new zoom function will be a marvellous help in learning more about an item and seeing how it performs on a real person. In the coming weeks we will refine the text descriptions and add our expert guidelines regarding size and fit so you can be sure of your selection.

  • The new navigation will hopefully make it easier to find what you are looking for and then select the perfect accompaniments. It is now easier to put together a top to toe outfit, or find related items to compliment your purchase.

  • Lastly, as you haven't been able to make it to the store, we hope you will take a browse of our Staff Recommends section, meet the team and gain their insight and advice. It's what our customers love most about a visit to our store so we plan to make our services more accessible to our online customers.


A great online store is so important in this day and age but, in our opinion, nothing is better than the real thing. Our customers venture far and wide for the chance to visit to our bricks and mortar store in central London. The opportunity to inspect the quality of the garments, feel the fabrics, talk to our staff and receive their help and advice is a very real benefit and worth the time and effort of a trip to London. Especially as London is one of the best cities in the world and we are just a stones throw from the British Museum, a few minutes walk from Covent Garden, Soho and the West End, you can make the most of your visit to the capital, it's a great day out or weekend away.

The website is still in beta testing for another week so if you have feedback we would love to hear it. If something can be done to improve the experience for all, we will do our very best to implement it. Just tell us what...


All the best,



Rowena Howie

Owner and Founder of Revival Retro
