Chicago's been waiting more than a year for high-end Italian jeweler Buccellati to plant a flagship boutique inside Oak Street's newly-remodeled Esquire theater. And now it would appear that the opening is imminent: just a few days ago, the brand Facebooked this image of their 2,405-square-foot boutique, writing, "Buccellati Chicago almost there..."
As previously reported, the opulent bi-level digs will feature a Murano chandelier, silk walls and a cushy private shopping area with champagne for VIPs and big spenders. Its tony neighbors will include Christian Louboutin, Tom Ford and Dolce & Gabbana.
