Commercial Attachés Cyril Gauchet and Keith Kalinowski served up a Unibroue beer tasting at the Chicago Collective opening night reception on Sunday, January 27. Fall lines were unveiled at this edition of the semi-annual menswear show, which attracts buyers and exhibitors from across the U.S. and Canada to its stylish displays at the Merchandise Mart. Montréal designer S. Cohen was featured at the show with support from the Québec Government Office in Chicago.
As is the case twice a year, the women’s apparel show Stylemax took place at the same time as the Chicago Collective, creating a synergy between the men’s and women’s lines. Stylemax is held four times a year, with this January’s show focusing on spring and summer lines.
