It is no secret that super-site Shopbop.com is one of the giants of fashion e-commerce, but if you still need convincing, here is some exciting news: Beginning today, for the first time ever, Club Monaco will be sold exclusively online at Shopbop. Shopbop fashion director Kate Ciepluch has worked with Club Monaco to curate a capsule collection of some of her favorite pieces for fall/holiday 2010. Key pieces include a faux fur coat, menswear-inspired pleated pants, structured satchels, an oversized plaid cape coat, a silky blouse, pressed shorts, a pleated and plaid skirt, and a boxy blazer. Check out the entire capsule collection at Shopbop.com; prices range from $24 to $1,100.
On a side note, Shopbop and Club Monaco are celebrating their newfound partnership by hosting a “Shop with the Pros” sweepstakes. The grand prize includes a trip to New York for two, a one-on-one styling session with Kate Ciepluch and Club Monaco Vice President of Women’s Design Caroline Belhumeur, and two $1,000 gift cards – to Club Monaco and Shopbop. The best part? No purchase is necessary. Submit your entry at Shopbop.com; the competition closes October 31, 2010.
