>> After a brief delay, Club Monaco fans will be able to buy the brand's clothes online this week. The new e-commerce site is still in a soft launch phase, but the brand's representatives told Fashionologie on Monday that its Facebook fans will get access to the site on Tuesday, and everyone else will be able to shop online Wednesday.
That'll be useful for fans of the brand who don't live anywhere near one of its stores. Club Monaco has just over 100 brick-and-mortar locations around the world, which means the site will be a useful tool as the brand continues to build a fan base. What we've seen of the site so far is functional and clean, but it's also pretty engaging. The brand's Tumblr, Culture Club, has prominent links on most of the pages, and some key products — like the women's black leather jacket in the P.S. You Need This section — are cleverly animated. And so long as the site stays stocked with a fresh assortment of products and new ways to entertain browsers and hardcore shoppers alike, we think it'll be a top shopping destination.
If you want early access to the site, you'll have to like Club Monaco on Facebook now. In the meantime, check out a few of the products we'll be buying when the site goes live.
