New Suns for 2021
Sunny Days are Here Again
Spring typically brings a sense of optimism and, after the year we’ve had, we are soaking it in! With our hopes high, starting to dip our toes back into moments of normalcy, we are ready for a serious look refresh and lots and lots of color.
The Spring Summer 21 STATE sun collection was just released with styles that know you are ready to get back out there and be noticed. This collection brings a more European feel – evoking the Riviera, relaxed but oozing style, inspired by the colors of the sun and sea – but with a Chicago take.
Just a block off the heart of the Magnificent mile, there’s a break in the skyscrapers to reveal an oasis of art – Chicago’s MCA off Dewitt Place. Built on the site of a former armory, the building still exudes strength, but enter to find a trove of contemporary art within. This style is constructed much like the MCA – with a strong frame to display exuberant colors and lines.
On North Franklin Street, in the River North neighborhood, the energy of the whole city seems to swirl around you. You could find yourself on Franklin for a wide number of reasons – checking out an art gallery, hitting a chic eatery or cocktail bar, taking a yoga class, or heading to window shop the showrooms of the Merchandise Mart. This style will have you looking hip and put together, no matter the activity.
The first sun style from our STATE x Japan Artisan Series draws inspiration from both Chicago and Japan. The mod, oversized style reminds us of Marina city, aka the corncob buildings, artistically looming over Kinzie St, and the painstakingly detailed titanium temples speak to Japan’s rich history of craftsmanship. Featuring an acetate front handcrafted in Chicago and beta-titanium temples manufactured in Japan.
