Sounds of the Emporio Armani Store opening could be heard as soon as the double doors opened. A DJ set was provided by White Shadow who was positioned underneath the architecturally spectacular, winding staircase. At the top of the circular staircase Company of Thieves performed live. The atmosphere was sophisticated, yet youthful, with the champagne flowing and delicate hors d’oeuvres on hand. The dim lighting allowed for backlit wall panels to highlight the many gorgeous pieces. Sunglasses, watches and shoes were displayed like works of art on upper and lower level walls. Jewelry was under glass tables allowing customers to view the accessories, while giving them an artifact-like feel. Simplistic neutrals were featured throughout the store, broken apart by electrifying, colorful complementing garments. Chicago welcomes Emporio Armani with its amazing collection at affordable prices.
