The hottest sportswear store to hit the scene this summer, DEKA is open and finally having a grand opening bash. When retail veteran Jim Whitlow opened the original DEKA Atlanta in 2007 he put forth an offering of sophisticated yet casual fashion. Now with DEKA Chicago continuing the momentum, Jim is throwing a party which happens this Thursday from 7-10. He'll fete an ever evolving collection of high-end pre and post-workout apparel as well as fashionable leisurewear including Adidas by Stella McCartney, Newton Running, Canada Goose, Adidas SLVR, Miche, Craft MPG, INHABIT, Splits 59 and the nation's third Y3 "shop in shop." If those brands don't tickle your interest, we've got 3 words for you: drinks with cupcakes. RSVP here and tell 'em Racked sent ya.
