Sponsored Edition: Back in Black (and White)

 There’s no gray area when it comes to basic fashion sense. You’re either fiercely fabulous or a walking fashion faux pas.

Make sure you land on the right side of the style spectrum this season and stop by Club Monaco’s See The World in Black & White event this Thursday. The international urban retailer, known for their noir/blanc palette of modern classic clothing, brings fashion fundamentals front and center  and honors their rich heritage of working with legendary photographers (think Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier and Walter Chin) during this monthly fete.

Hosted by yours truly, Lei Chic, the evening features work from  local up-and-coming photographer, Rujunko Pugh. The Japan-born, Mainland-raised artist also holds a Masters in Molecular Bioscience and Bioengineering, giving her an entirely different perspective behind the lens.

Indulge in luscious libations courtesy of Pearl Ultra Lounge and nibble on petite sweets from Patisserie La Palme D’or as you scope out the latest collections to the beat of DJ Rayne.

Our co-host, local celebrity stylist Blaine Ashley (whose work has appeared in People, Modern Luxury Hawaii and InStyle) will also be there to help you find your signature style and personalize your wardrobe with Club Monaco’s top must-haves for fall. And, if you spend more than $150, you get an exclusive CM gift.

No matter what you choose, you can’t go wrong.
Because it’s all, basically, beautiful.

Attend Club Monaco’s See The World in Black and White event, Thursday, September 25, 6-8 p.m. at the Club Monaco store at Ala Moana Center.
