Club Monaco – the international retailer recently opened its first Hawai‘i store at Ala Moana Center –and will launch a unique photo exhibit on Wednesday, July 16, 2008. The exhibit, “See the World in Black and White,” echoes Club Monaco’s artistic black and white palette of clothing and the brand’s rich heritage of showcasing iconic imagery in its stores throughout the world. The exhibit was created exclusively for Club Monaco by three local photographers. All photos on display will be available for purchase, with proceeds benefiting the Honolulu Academy of Arts and ARTafterDARK.
“Supporting the arts is an integral element of the Club Monaco brand,” said John Mehas, President and CEO of Club Monaco. “Our partnership with the Honolulu Academy of Arts and ARTafterDARK allows us to integrate art into the Club Monaco shopping experience and give back to the community we serve.” See the World in Black and White” is free and open to the public. The exhibit will be available in Club Monaco’s Ala Moana Center store through the end of July.
Club Monaco strives to make art accessible for shoppers. The brand’s new Ala Moana Center store will feature a permanent gallery wall highlighting past campaign images by famed photographers including Richard Avedon, Mario Testino and Patrick Demarchalier. The gallery wall is one way that Club Monaco pays tribute to the brand’s dedication to art and culture.
Club Monaco’s new Hawai‘i flagship store will be home to the brand’s entire collection, which was designed with a clear focus on affordable luxury offerings, including men’s and women’s updated classics as well as the season’s must-have fashions. The Ala Moana Center store will also feature an exclusive design – unlike any other in the world, with décor that evokes the aesthetic of the international jetsetter with custom-made panel fans, exotic faux-zebra print stools and vintage-inspired glass accessory cases. Additionally, the Hawai’i store will also incorporate local elements, including a one-of-a-kind surfboard, created and designed by well-know shaper, Keoki Ching of Keoki Custom Surfboard Designs. The store will also boast the brand’s first collection of eyewear and swimwear—both of which debuted this spring – as well as the world-wide launch of Club Monaco’s exclusive Fleur de Lys Capsule Collection.
