The time has come to say goodbye to C. Wonder‘s peppy, prep-centric line of apparel, accessories, and gifts. Yesterday, the brand confirmed it will close all its store locations, followed by the shuttering of its website in coming weeks.

C. Wonder hit several milestones since its 2011 launch in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City, including winning an Accessories Council ACE Award for Best Specialty Retailer. Founded by Christopher Burch (also an adviser to jewelry brand BaubleBar), the colorful company found a niche in whimsical accessories and gift-worthy goods.

Until we pinpoint our next spot for a monogram fix, we’ll be missing C. Wonder’s cheeky graphics and hue-happy designs.
