Notre just opened its Andersonville doors in November last year and has quickly risen to become one of Chicago’s best menswear and lifestyle boutiques. The retailer stocks denims from A.P.C, upper wear by JOHN ELLIOTT + CO., boots from VIBERG, and sneakers by COMMON PROJECTS. Some of its other brands include the likes of STONE ISLAND, visvim, wings + horns, Maison Kitsuné, and Y-3. The store also retails home goods and grooming products by brands like (MALIN+GOETZ), Baxter of California, Harry’s, JASON MARKK, retaW, and Braun. And to top things off, Notre is now carrying the recently introduced PAX 2 and is on a very short list of fashion retail stores to be partnering directly with PAX Labs on such an initiative.
So what else has helped? They’re hosting intimate gatherings in the shop to support the Chicago creative community. For example, Notre recently launched ‘Notre Talks’, a series of in-shop talks about music, art, and culture. The first talk took place last night and was hosted by Chuck Anderson with featured guest Jason M. Peterson. Notre Talks adds tothe store’s mission to become a source of carefully selected quality designer and streetwear brands. The show will include critiques and information on the latest trends, proving that the retailer will have a lot more in store for us in the coming months.
Considering these developments havehappened in less than ayear, Notre is definitely on everyone’s radar, in Chicago and out. Check out their offerings online at Notre-shop.com and keep your eyes peeled for what their cooking up next.
