Co-owned by Julia Korol and Kate Bunton, a pair of Anthropologie veterans, this indie boutique sells men’s and women’s clothing that are both modern and timeless. The simple, minimal aesthetic allows the clothes and accessories, namely international labels making their U.S. debut (Honoré out of Paris) as well as designs from local artisans (Claranette), to really shine. In the near future, customers will be able to browse a long list of independent labels such as Ilana Kohn, Re:named, Cameo, Native Youth, Barque, Gorjana and more.

Rocky + Luella says
ROCKY+LUELLA is about 'less is more.' A partnership between friends Julia Korol and Kate Bunton, R+L's specialty is independent designers from the US and abroad who focus on ethical production, transparency and always effortless style. On the racks you'll find Ilana Kohn, Kowtow, Ali Golden, Osei-Duro and more. On the shelves you'll find quirky ceramics from favorites Group Partner, Liv & Dom and Workaday Handmade; skincare products from Moon Rivers Naturals; jewelry from Seaworthy and Drift/Riot; leather bags; journals; and a lot more.

Both Midwesterners at heart, Julia and Kate first met in Washington, DC, working at the same popular women's retail giant. After separately packing their bags and moving back home, the pair reunited and discovered a shared passion for the slow fashion movement and a shared disappointment in the lack of Chicago shops stocking these independent designers. ROCKY+LUELLA first opened its doors in 2014 in Logan Square. It has since moved to West Town where it continues to grow and evolve.

A great shoppe, very vibrant, and extraordinary! The atmosphere in this place is amazing! If you have a chance, stop in! Definitely one you do not want to miss! { ^ -^}

Their products are incredible and can't be found anywhere else in the city! All of the designers are hand picked after their ethics and quality are verified and it shows throughout the shop. I haven't been disappointed with a piece I've gotten from here since I started shopping with them over a year ago!

Absolutely love this shop. It's my favorite. They carry a lot of great pieces and some fantastic jewelry I haven't seen in other Chicago boutiques.
