Matt Hudson to leave Monsoon

Claudia Schiffer for Accessorize
Monsoon’s managing director, Matt Hudson, will be stepping down from his role at the luxury high street store at the end of this month.

Hudson , who joined Monsoon as managing director in April last year after leaving his position as trading director for womenswear, girlswear and lingerie at Marks and Spencer , is to be replaced by Peter Ridler.

Ridler is currently managing director at sister store Accessorize, and will now lead both brands simultaneously.

A Monsoon spokesperson told Drapers: “As a result of this [Hudson’s departure], the company will be reorganising its management structure and consolidating both brands under the leadership of Peter Ridler.

Meanwhile, Monsoon are also on the look out for a new buying and design director.

Why all the changes, we have to wonder? It all seems very hush-hush at the moment.
