If you thought you had designer Alessandra Branca’s style pegged, think again. The classicist-with-a-twist opened a new shop in Chicago this May that takes her signature style and amps it up a few decibels.
Branca is a 2,700-square-foot lifestyle shop located in a historical 19th-century brownstone two blocks west of Chicago’s Michigan Avenue. Bookended by Loyola University buildings, the shop is a study in contrasts.
