Since Akira’s start in 2002, the fashion-forward boutique has expanded to 16 Chicago-area locations, each of which outfits women, men, and toes with high-end threads and basics. The clothing emporium has garnered attention from Us Weekly for its chic, nightlife-friendly apparel, sparing evening owls the trouble of sewing Christmas lights onto sweat suits. An animal-print mesh dress ($39.90) attracts attention with a plunging, heart-shaped neckline and subtle spots, and a southwest-print elastic miniskirt ($29.90) brings to mind summer sunsets with its blood-orange and fuchsia hues. Feet appear fancier with silver Jeffrey Campbell wedges ($114.90), and arches get a rest in basic black flats ($24.90), good for commuting by subway or pogo stick. Men get in on the action with clothing brands such as Ben Sherman, Hugo Boss, and Diesel, with Cubs graphic T-shirts ($24) and Akira-brand button-down shirts ($49.90) available for casual and formal situations.
Akira swaddles customers from clavicle to toe with a collection of trendy apparel from more than 200 designer brands crafted by foreign, domestic, and Chicago fabricsmiths. Women, men, and mannequins can browse a selection of clothing and accessories that includes the signature looks of Jeffrey Campbell, Gracia, and AMMO.
