Club Calais (formerly Laura Jean) is a standout among Newport, Rhode Island’s best shopping streets- Bellevue Avenue. What began in 2005 with a focus on denim, has evolved into an exceptional store catering to women who really love fashion. It became clear in 2017 when Nancy Isherwood purchased Laura Jean, that she had big ideas and big plans. Nancy’s background in fine art, as well as Gallery ownership, is evident. From the windows reminiscent of the shops that line Madison Avenue, to the spectacular interior design, you know you are in a special place.

While the clothing is the star of the show, Club Calais presents them as an artist would display their favorite work. Everything is beautiful. The attention to detail in the way the clothes are displayed to the lighting design, and the ease with which one can navigate the store, make this a singular shopping experience.

Club Calais welcomes you each season with the newest looks from the fashion capitals of the world with a focus on the best of American and European design. Fabrics are gorgeous using the finest cashmere and wool, as well as organic cottons and silks. We haven’t forgotten our denim roots either, featuring the most popular and trend-setting brands; Club Calais always carries more than 60 styles in stock. We are experts in denim fitting and offer alteration services, as well.

Never flashy but always on target, Club Calais provides a unique shopping experience that we think you’ll love.

We invite you to visit us on Bellevue Avenue or at our online store, and connect with us on Facebook and Instagram. We would love to style you.
