There seems to be an increasing number of reasons why we no longer need to fly to London to shop; Chicago openings of foreign stores like Zara, soon-to-be-local Topshop, Liberty of London line at Target, and now one more.
British retailer Ted Baker has opened up shop on Rush Street, bringing us one step closer to looking Euro-chic without stepping foot on a plane.
The retailer was originally created as a men’s dress shirt store back in the day, but now sells a plethora of men’s and women’s clothing and accessories, from ties to tailored coats. The raw space -- complete with industrial flooring and decor that hangs sideways so it looks “windblown” -- is an added bonus to the clothes shopping experience.
Looks like Chicago’s getting even more fashionable, right in time for the New Year.
