The RSVP Gallery recently opened its doors in Chicago, Illinois to the delight of numerous consumers and art connoisseurs in Chicago and across the United States. The space serves as both a luxury boutique and art gallery that carries some of the most exclusive brands and artists’ work from all over the world. RSVP is short for Résponde si vous plez (or please respond) and the store’s name is an invitation for guests to not only visit the space, but to participate, get inspired, and respond.
The design of the boutique/gallery features bars of green neon Green lights accented against a black painted ceiling that exposes only the brick walls and floor. Various limited pieces of art from the private collections of some of today’s biggest names line the walls of the space, all of which were commissioned by RSVP. The idea was to channel the store’s design concept of pairing pop art with luxury.
Art from Mark Newson, Stephen Sprouse, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, KAWS, NoPattern, and more is on display throughout the gallery. Additionally RSVP is proud to carry some of the top apparel and footwear brands from across the world including KaiKai KiKi, Ambush, Dee & Ricky, Super, Rizzoli, OriginalFake, Casio G-Shock, Incase, Kdia, Head Porter, MEDICOM TOY CO., CLOT, Lupe Fiasco’s Trilly & Truly, Vane NYC, Boxed Water, and more.
We recently had a chance to sit down and speak with two of the partners of RSVP Gallery, Marc Moran and Virgil Abloh, to get a better understanding of what RSVP Gallery is and what they are aiming to do. Additionally Freshness is proud to present some exclusive images of various upcoming products from Ambush, KaiKai KiKi, Super, Trilly & Truly, and of course RSVP Gallery.
