LOGAN SQUARE — Logan Square may have become a hub for bars and restaurants, but now a high-end clothing store has entered the mix.
Meyvn, 2627 N. Kedzie Ave., opened this week across the street from the Logan Square Blue Line stop, offering designer men's casual clothing, as well as other items, such as furniture and personal care items.
"Clothing is the main thing we sell but it's really what I consider a lifestyle store," said owner Noah Zagor. "We carry everything for someone who wants quality design to sort of permeate all aspects of their life."
Zagor's worked in men's fashion for 15 years in both New York and Chicago. He worked as a creative director for Haberdash, which also has a "lifestyle" feel to, offering espresso drinks and shaves in addition to clothing.
Zagor also spent time at Brunello Cucinelli and Barney's, but always wanted to open his own shop.
He and partner Tony Kim, who also works in the music business, both live nearby and thought the neighborhood was ready for their kind of shop, along with its $200 Monsoir Lacenaire shirts and $450 Common Projects sneakers.
"The timing felt right that all these wonderful restaurants and bars have been popping up for a while now that cater to we think the same customer that we have," said Zagor. "There's been this great kind of creative conversation going on in Chicago and Logan Square specifically, and it's been about mostly about food and drink and design and art but no one's really brought in the retail aspect and clothing aspect, and we thought that it was the right time to bring that element into the conversation."
Said Kim, "It just kind of fit for us to add our two cents."
Meyvn is open Wednesday through Friday from noon to 8 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., to attract some of the farmers market crowd.
The shop is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays for now, but Zagor said he eventually plans to be open all seven days.
