Last week I was invited to get a sneak peek of Flagship’s new location at 706 N. Milwaukee Street and provide feedback on design. You may remember Flagship was located for a short time in the Grand Avenue Mall, but took a brief break to get some inspiration and focus on showroom parties. I covered their Intermezzo party this past winter.
Once inside, a small group of us were walked through design concepts for the store. It’s coming along nicely and the store is set to open on July 26th for Milwaukee’s Gallery Night. They’ll be hosting a special event consisting of a photo exhibit from 5-8 and then a fashion show of their pre-fall collection next door at Buddha Lounge. You can get more info on their Facebook event.
The boutique will be carrying a mix of playful casual items, worldly modern fashion, and lifestyle items. One of the reasons I love this boutique is their focus on local Chicago designers such as Nora | Del Busto and Annie Handbags.
Here’s a couple of sneak peeks of displays below. My personal favorite is the feast of jewels concept that is being developed. It’s a gorgeous way to show off some of their great accessories.
