A new menswear store bowed in Chicago two weeks ago – Gallery Aesthete. A brain child of Stephen Naparstek, the owner of Bonnie and Clyde’s, the new shop offers a carefully selected designer lineup in a stark space designed by Lukas Machnik. Next to the established names like Ann Demeulemeester, Comme des Garcons, and Rick Owens hang clothes by Boris Bidjan Saberi, InAisce and Julius. Faliero Sarti scarves round up the collection. A rotating selection of fine art will be displayed alongside the garments and accessories, to highlight Naparstek’s view that the boundaries between fashion and art have been blurred.
