This Week’s Top Story

Notre (notre-shop.com), the hip menswear boutique, has opened a pop-up shop at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel (11 E. Walton St.) The temporary space will be open through the end of November, at which point the shop will unveil a newly expanded space in the West Loop. Till then, head to the Gold Coast to check out sneakers, streetwear, and high-fashion collections from hip brands such as Y-3, A.P.C, Acne Studios, and Nike Tier Zero.

And when the West Loop boutique reopens near the end of the year, it will span 4,500 square feet — previously, it was 1,800 square feet — and carry Spring 2019 collections from labels like Off-White and Thom Browne. The shop will also offer experiential retail, hosting in-store programming such as panel talks, workshops, and experiential build-outs.
