Over at the Prudential Center, Club Monaco is launching its New York Fashion Week Collection Spring 2017 tomorrow night. The Collection was inspired by the documentary Latcho Drom, which follows a family of travelers from Romania to India and pays homage to timeless travel celebrated through song and dance. The women’s collection features colorful patterns and peasant details offset by clean, crisp fabrics while for the men’s line, you’ll find updated classics with a twist (think newsboy jackets in nylon tech fabrics).
