Buckle up, ladies, there's a new Ann in town. It's the newly redesigned Ann Taylor concept and it's opening at Old Orchard this Friday. The look was inspired by "the ultimate closet," and houses a broader selection of product, expert styling services and shop-in-shop destinations.
Similarly to the Michigan Avenue store, this store will reflect the brand's most significant evolution since 2009 when the new Head of Design, Lisa Axelson revamped collection to meet the needs and aspirations of the modern woman. The next phase of the rejuvenation is the brand's new store concept as seen here at Old Orchard. Think washed maplewood floors, luxurious crystal chandeliers, modern tufted furniture and sleek feminine fixtures inspired by the ultimate closet.
