As much as I like to spend my (hard earned) money on things made by small (ideally local) companies, I can't deny good quality design, even if it's produced by a sizable company. Club Monaco caught my eye 3 years ago when the collection started to resemble a "wearable Helmut Lang" with young professional price points. The collections fits the city lifestyle perfectly with beautiful muted color palettes and up to date silhouettes, that aren't completely out there. Their simple art direction truly inspires me to "redo" everything in my surroundings. The best part being that you can update your wardrobe with a few outfits without feeling too guilty. Here are some of my favorite looks from their Spring 2010 collection.
