Madewell, J. Crew's little sister, is opening its first Illinois store at Westfield Old Orchard today. J. Crew leased the name of the defunct brand —originally a Massachusetts-based workwear label in the 30s—and launched several stores in 2005. The e-commerce site followed in 2010, helped along by a collaboration with It Girl Alexa Chung. Clothes tend to be a little cooler than J. Crew, but with the same appreciation for spiffed-up versions of basics like cardigans, blazers, and shirtdresses.
