CLUB MONACO WINTER COLLECTION
The Club Monaco women’s collection flirts with feminine elements like ruffles, covered buttons and puff sleeves borrowed from a Victorian era. Bold romantic floras are juxtaposed with military inspired pieces like clean top coats and elongated trousers. Novel textures bring the collection to life with items that are meant to be layered, mixed and matched. Compact wools in outerwear are softened with an unexpected raw edge, and velvet makes an appearance in everything from pencil skirts to ankle boots. A reinvented corduroy with a micro-wale moonlights as a velveteen fabric, and furniture trim like tassels, ribbon, and pom-poms highlight textured embellishment in a romantic way.
“We continue to evolve heritage pieces, but layer on a Victorian sensibility with feminine prints and unfussy details. This is offset with military tailoring and a play on shrunken versus oversized proportions.” said creative director Caroline Belhumeur.
The men’s Winter Collection reflects a renewed sense of elevated classics, focusing on rich color, textural fabrications and a military sensibility. Finely tailored outerwear is key, with focused attention paid towards collars and lapels, offering subtle updates to the cut and shape and adding an element of drama and character. Sweaters are knitted using sumptuous cashmere and rustic merino yarns, sourced from best-in-class mills. The category’s focus is on medium gauge rollnecks and turtlenecks that speak to comfort and warmth and are designed to be layered beneath winter coats and tailored jackets. Trousers take on new shape with added volume and pleats for a more fashion-oriented silhouette. In all, there is a rich, warm feeling to the entire collection.
“The Winter collection combines my knowledge of tailoring, construction, and fabrics. I hope to continue the brand’s commitment of modern, elevated Menswear and to delivering affordable, urban, luxurious product.” said Vice President of Men's Design Matthew Millward.
