Chicago's New Armani

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood is getting a new addition. Today, our sister site found out that Emporio Armani will be occupying part of the space that used to house the original Barneys flagship, before it was divided into separate stores when Barneys moved across the street. And it'll be in good company: Hermes, Oliver Peoples, Moncler, and Suit Supply are already there, and soon, Vera Wang will be there too. For those unfamiliar with the neighborhood, sometimes this happens. [Racked Chicago]
