Van Cleef & Arpels opens a new boutique on Oak Street, in Chicago
Van Cleef & Arpels opens a new boutique on December 14. The elegant universe of the Maison is brought to life throughout two floors of Chicago’s new location on Oak Street, in the city’s premier shopping district. The Art Déco-inspired facade of the boutique leads into a modern interior designed in a subtle palette of gold, onyx and dove grey tones.
Cascading between the two levels of the boutique is a handmade, double-height glass chandelier custom-made in France, as well as refinely decorated walls paneled in gold-leaf and Japanese silk. The second floor houses an Art Déco VIP salon, where clients can view the Maison’s latest creations in comfort and privacy.
The boutique is showcasing new creations, including new pieces from the timeless High Jewelry collection Snowflake. Inspired by the Maison’s “flocon” motif introduced in the 1940s, these breathtaking pieces combine the luminosity of platinum with the sparkle of diamonds.
63 E Oak Street, Chicago, IL 60611
Opening hours: Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The former Van Cleef & Arpels Chicago boutique inside the Drake Hotel will close permanently from December 13.

"Precious Art Deco Objects" exhibition
The collection, amassed for the Princess Catherine Aleya Aga Khan, wife of the Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan, features some incredible masterpieces, attesting to a remarkable innovativeness, imagination, skills and savoir faire.
These precious objects, whose craftsmanship was as important as their function, were specially designed for the first wave of ‘liberated’ women in the 1920s: women who smoked, enjoyed going out, applied make-up in public and dare publically keeping an eye on their watch.
The exhibition at L’École, School of Jewelry Arts showcases the multiple Chinese, Japanese, Persian and European influences on these exceptional Art Deco objects.
Free entrance April 4th to 25th
From Monday to Saturday, 12 pm -7 pm
Venue: L’École, School of Jewelry Arts
