The MCA Store just got its holiday shipment, and you can color us enamored. Along with bunny scarves and penguin-shaped ice cubes, the gift-worthy merchandise includes a glam guard for grease splatter.
Designed by Prêt à Tacher (that's French for "ready to stain") the Haute Couture Apron, $65, is made in France with Turkish cotton. Around its neck, a pattern depicts a gold, bejeweled necklace made out of cutlery. Our favorite part? This little number is ours, all ours, Chicago: The MCA is its exclusive U.S. retailer.
