Oak StreetOn this legendary street of designer stores in the heart of the Gold Coast, shoppers lay down their cash for cachet.
Located just north of Water Tower Place and the shops at 900 N. Michigan, Oak Street's converted old brownstones and prestigious boutiques house some of the world's best known, most desirable names in luxury goods.
Shoppers can view Marc Jacobs and Theory clothing lines at Barneys New York, visit Prada, YSL or Jil Sander boutiques to browse their newest designer lines, or shop for must-have designer accessories at Furla, Hermes, Jimmy Choo, Kate Spade, or Tod’s. And what bride-to-be wouldn’t want to get fitted for a gown in the Vera Wang Bridal Salon.
Designer clothing abounds at Ultimo (for men/women), Milani Boutique (for kids), Marina Rinaldi (women's plus sizes) and George Greene and Tessuti (men). A popular couture consignment store, The Daisy Shop, offers smart shoppers the best labels at resale prices.
For fine jewelry, see the stunning one-of-a-kind diamond jewels at Graff, or the exquisite designs at Lester Lampert, Judith Ripka and Trabert & Hoeffer.
A growing number of retailers are bringing prices down out of the designer stratosphere with stylish, moderately priced clothing, accessory and beauty products.
Step into BCBG and Lucky Brand (M/W) for clothing and accessories, Enzo Angiolini for women’s shoes or Glasses Ltd. for prescription eyewear. And Bravco Beauty, a local favorite, offers a wide selection of hair care products and cosmetics.
Sarah's Pastries & Candies is a sweet addition to the street, with freshly made cupcakes, candies, muffins, and other delectable treats.
In these urbane surroundings, men's and women's clothing, accessories and home furnishings are often shown like works of art.
