Back in May, we reported MMUK MAN to be reaping the rewards of the new found relaxed attitude towards make-up for men in Britain, now a new deal with to sell its’ products in the US suggests the trend is going global.

It was only a matter of time before we made our products available in the US. was a clear winner in my eyes, thanks to its edgy and fresh approach to men’s style, grooming and lifestyle,” Dally said on the partnership.

MMUK MAN is also rumoured to be eyeing up space at the renowned Dubai Mall in August, with further partnerships in the UK expected to be announced later in the year. 

The ambitious brand is also moving to a state of the art facility in East Sussex in September.
