Saks Fifth Avenue has opened a newly renovated men’s store, Seven, within its historic Chicago flagship on Michigan Avenue.
The store is designed by Saks Fifth Avenue with retail designers Jeffery Hutchison & Associates and is home to commissioned, revolving art installations, high-end amenities and more.
The floor opening, uniting Six with Seven, features a custom bronze and steel sculpture cutting through both levels. Nine large floor-to-ceiling vitrines are strategically placed on both floors, spotlighting collection highlights, much like the effect of exterior windows on the street.
Both floors are softened with residential-style touches including mixed-oak plank flooring from the Netherlands, mid-century modern architectural touches, and an eclectic collection of classic and contemporary furniture.
Seven drew it’s inspiration from the great modern architecture pioneers of Chicago such as Mies Van der Rohe and Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill with materials and details that allude to industrial media. Raw and blackened steel, gray cerused oak and wall coverings feel inspired by the machine age.
