This past weekend marked the last days avant garde gallery/store, Gallery Aesthete, owned by Stephen Naparstek operated out of their current Gold Coast location (46 E. Oak Street). The building they are currently housed in is scheduled for demolition later this summer-according to a post on their page.
You may remember that after shuttering Bonnie & Clyde in Wicker Park, it was reconceptualized and they opened Gallery Aesthete back in 2012. The store carries high end menswear apparel from labels such as Ann Demeulemeester, Rick Owens, Comme des Garçons, Maison Margiela, Raf Simons, Boris Bidjan Sabir and Lost & Found.
Don’t freet, On June 18th they will be having a moving sale at 1751 W. Division St.(between Hermitage & Wood) with final markdown for SS15 and previous season stock at discounts up to 80% off!! In the meantime you can still shop their amazing curated selections HERE.
No word yet on the actual address of their new store, which is designed by Lukas Machnik, and will be located in Wicker Park.
