Ferragamo Facelift

After closing for more than six months of renovations, Salvatore Ferragamo (645 N. Michigan Ave., 312-397-0464, has reopened with a brand new second floor. At 3,000 square feet, the new two-story building features a three-dimensional glowing glass wall with display windows, a full-length video wall, and updated lighting with “true color rendition.”

The store features the brand’s ready-to-wear collections (both women’s and men’s) as well as shoes, handbags, luggage, jewelry, eyewear, and other accessories. Two items from the fall/winter collection that we’ve got our eyes on: black patent calf leather pumps with cuff detail ($825, above) and an optic white crocodile handbag ($17,000).
