Beach Boutique

Rebena recently read a fashion blog about Club Monaco’s annual “Beach Boutique”.  We read that it was beyond amazing – full of rich textures, with a big hints of edginess, all inspired by the bohemian spirit.

It’s been a long time since Rebena has stepped into a Club Monaco but I cannot tell you how super delighted we were when wandered inside.

This seasons theme felt very bohemian beach with a minimalist yet luxurious approach.

Although the luxury aspect has always been Club Monaco staples: cashmere and silks in muted tones or suede in tailored silhouettes.

Rebena’s visit felt so fresh with a heap of details that balanced itself perfectly between edgy and ’70s boho.

To put things simply, Club Monaco you’re killing it!
