on the web: of a kind

Of A Kind is a fashion website that features limited edition products and stories from the emerging fashion designers behind the products.  The site’s tagline is “Know and Own” – which is exactly what the site sets out to do.  It presents interviews with up and coming talent about the artists’ process and products, and then offers a limited quantity of each product for sale over the site (think Gilt).  I love the idea behind this site, because I love supporting local emerging talent.  For example, when I go shopping in my neighborhood, I always prefer the small independent boutique stores.  This is the same thinking.  Although this talent isn’t exactly local, it’s emerging, which is great!  It’s also a great way to spot new talent and score some pieces before everyone else jumps on the bandwagon.

Check out an interview with the women behind the site about why they started the site and wanted to make online shopping a more personal experience.

Welcome to the world of online shopping

Yesterday brought some exciting and long awaited news concerning one of my favorite brands…. Club Monaco finally entered the world of online shopping!  Club Monaco falls somewhere along the lines of J. Crew / Madewell, but in my opinion it tends to incorporate more on trend shapes into their clothing.  As I generally prefer online shopping, this was very welcome news.  Until recently, Club Monaco and Zara were both holding out against offering online shopping, which was very irritating.  However, Zara finally jumped on the bandwagon last year and now Club Monaco is doing the same!  To make it even better, Club Monaco is collaborating with a few other brands to offer some of their items on the website, including Rachel Comey shoes, which I think need a new home in my closet .
