Via the Racked tipline, we just got word that International Editor at Large for Vogue Magazine, Hamish Bowles is in Chicago. Why? We're unsure. But we speculate that his visit incorporates a check-in at Ikram's store, a splash of chardonnay in the new Burberry fitting rooms or perhaps a fish dish by Grant Achatz. Notable events we're in tune with that he may be in town for include Time Out's Shopping Awards, Burberry's Art of The Trench event and the opening of Del Frisco's above the new Louboutin on Oak Street. As of yet, we're unsure but remain glued to his Twitter profile, hoping for an update.
