Located in Wicker Park, this high-end boutique sells styles from both established and up-and-coming labels, including local talent like handbag designer Susan Fitch. The minimalist, loft-like space, outfitted with dark polished floors, light gray walls, and a miniature tree with necklaces hanging from its bare branches, perfectly complements the small yet well-edited inventory. Highlights may include Alexander McQueen scarves, Isabel Marant boots, high-collared Derek Lam trench coats, cocktail dresses by Chloé, and limited edition Bernardo Vintage Couture sandals, handcrafted from Italian leather. Garments range from casual to formal, but price tags are high across the board.
