Michigan Avenue who? The stretch of Oak Street just west of Michigan Avenue has become the go-to spot for ultra-chic retailers. And it's time to say bonjour to Maje and Sandro. The French sister brands have secured the last available spots inside the Esquire Theater project, which already has tenants like Christian Louboutin and Dolce & Gabbana.
Together, Maje and Sandro will occupy 3,300 square feet and three stories of space, though each store will have its own entrance and sign. Maje sells women's clothing, and Sandro slings apparel for both sexes— but FYI, you might want to start saving up. Chicago Real Estate Daily reports that a lacy sleeveless top at Maje goes for around $235, while a men's blazer at Sandro rings in at $775. Mon dieu! —Moira Lawler
