Back in 2008, when the Marc by Marc Jacobs boutique opened in Bucktown, company president Robert Duffy told us he was scouting Chicago locations for the higher-end Collection. And, of course, it doesn't get much higher than the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in the Gold Coast. It's a natural fit to find the shop (which opened in spring 2010) situated at the base of the posh hotel. In addition to MJ's top-of-the-line women's, men's and children's designs (including a nice selection of shoes, fragrances, art books and even some less expensive Marc by Marc items), the boutique also boasts a classy purple-and-gold-glass tile mosaic designed by Stephan Jaklitsch Architects.
