The NBA All-Star Game brought a slew of extravagant parties and performances to Chicago this weekend, with sightings of celebrities like Kanye West, Kim Kardashian West, 50 Cent and Cardi B. If you missed out on the action, there's at least one luxury pop-up experience that's still open—and you don't need an invite to check it out. Designer brand Gucci set up shop inside the former South Central Bank at 160 N Morgan Street, transforming the once drab building into a groovy, upscale retail experience.

Wrapped in a purple geometric mural painted by Colossal Media and adorned with disco balls, the pop-up shop showcases Gucci's '70s-inspired GG Psychedelic Collection, which reimagines the iconic logo in technicolored hues. Shoppers can browse men's and women's handbags, luggage, shoes, accessories and jewelry. As a nod to the weekend's festivities, there's even a double-G–emblazoned basketball that goes for a cool $1,980, according to Block Club Chicago. Looking for something a bit more affordable? A $25 notebook is the least expensive piece of designer merch you can snag at this pop-up, but window-shopping isn't discouraged.

Gucci's psychedelic West Loop retail experience will stick around through March 2 and is open daily from 11am to 8pm at 160 N Morgan Street. Take a look around the glitzy designer digs below, and start saving your pennies if you plan to ball out.
