Who’d have thought that a city not known for its fash­ion sense would be home to one of the most beau­ti­ful bou­tiques in the world? We at know a thing or two about high-end stores and Ikram, the famed shop helmed by front-row reg­u­lar Ikram Gold­man, is hands-down a gem on a par with – if not bet­ter than – 10 Corso Como or Dover Street Mar­ket. With its scarlet lac­quered in­te­ri­ors, art­ful dis­plays of la­bels from Monse to Si­mone Rocha and even Hong Kong-based Jour­den, not to men­tion a home sec­tion where you can pick up won­der­ful gifts, Ikram is a world­class lux­ury haven. Ikram Café, lo­cated up­stairs, is a chic spot in which to en­joy a farm-to-ta­ble meal in one of the city’s posh­est shop­ping neigh­bour­hoods, just off the Mag­nif­i­cent Mile stretch of N Michi­gan Av­enue.

Ikram, how­ever, is the only store worth check­ing out in the area as its neigh­bours are the lux­ury brands typ­i­cal of ev­ery ma­jor city. To shop like a lo­cal, go in­stead to Wicker Park and Buck­town. The ar­eas are home to the usual sus­pects – Free Peo­ple, Ur­ban Out­fit­ters and so on – but also to in­de­pen­dent re­tail­ers. Fash­ion fiends should visit Robin Rich­man, a small bou­tique of avant­garde wom­enswear stock­ing brands
