Club Monaco dropped some looks from their Fall 2011 collection and we are definitely feeling the direction that they are headed. The inspiration comes from 1950’s beatnik movement and what they are calling “suburban prep”. While there are most certainly some quintessential prep pieces, there are also more European influences as seen in the unstructured jackets, merino cardigans, and scarves. It seems that there’s a little something for everybody in this collection.
