Kristin Cavallari’s Uncommon James Is Now In Chicago’s West Loop


TV personality and fashion designer Kristin Cavallari has opened a brick-and-mortar location in Chicago’s West Loop for her retail brand, Uncommon James, which joins the Nashville-based flagship and a pop-up shop in L.A. to make a trio of stores offering dainty jewelry and home goods like tea towels, cheese knives and bar accessories in stylish environs. (The collection is also available online.)

The newest shop features custom design elements such as a clever swing and a neon sign, both created by California-based design company Clover Visuals. “We tried to create a comfortable, modern feel inspired by Chicago’s rich history of design,” Cavallari says. “We focused on details, textures and sight lines, and also wanted to create a seamless feeling from the sidewalk to the interior of the store.”
