ï»¿St. Alfred, the Chi-town mainstay, has collaborated with Nike to open up a unique retail space. The store is opening in conjunction with the World Cup–hence the tagline “Bleed Your Colors”–and is designed to feature exclusive pieces from Nike, as well as collaborations between St. Alfreds and Nike. For April, the store will feature works designed by Chicago-based designer Cody Hudson of Struggle, Inc. Patrons can view the design process as well as make customized tweaks. There are 6 Hudson x Nike x St. Alfred works for sale from April 15th until April 30th.
Expect new collaborative works with exciting artists each month, as the nature of the space extends the permutations of the pieces to the customer, who will also partake in the reworking of designs. The store is located next to the existing St. Alfreds location and will officially open to the public on April 15th. A full calendar of events will follow, so keep checking the St. Alfred’s blog for more information.
