On August 18th Gallery Aesthete reopened in Chicago. Moving from an intentionally hidden location in the city’s heart, the boutique is now situated in a storefront location in the Wicker Park neighborhood. The gallery’s brutalist design is a collaboration between interior architect Lukas Machnik and Gallery Aesthete’s owner, Stephen Naparstek. Formerly a menswear store, the newly expanded store now includes a carefully selected womenswear section, featuring designers such as Rick Owens and Shaun Leane.
We are co-hosting Diane Pernet’s Film Festival, A Shaded View on Fashion Film in Chicago this May with Gallery Aesthete and School of Art Institute of Chicago. There will be a Q&A session with Diane Pernet after the screenings. We hope you can join us.
