There are now countless online retailers that are making the foray into the offline world with exclusive stores in brick-and-mortar formats. Rather than opening its doors to the masses, e-retailer Revolve took a dramatically different approach to its first-ever Melrose Avenue location.
'The Social Club' is a prestigious store that's only open to top-spending members of Revolve by invite. Those who will be among the few to see the inside of The Social Club will include top-spending customers, influencers, stylists and celebrities. Inside this exclusive store, Revolve members will be able to take part in stylist consultations and order a catered meal to go along with a scheduled appointment.
As well as functioning as a place to pamper the brand's most elite clientele, the space will double as an entertainment venue for celebrity appearances, concerts and retail space for pop-up shops.
