Next month, le Dress will move away from its frocks-only theme and expand its selection to formal tops and jeans like Chicago-based denim line Henry & Belle.
Aside from being a favorite of celebrities like Jessica Alba and Katherine Heigl, Henry & Belle was probably picked by sisters-in-law le Dress storeowners Eva and Robyn Anderson for its family ties. Creator Henry Mann used wife Belle as his main style inspiration. In addition to the local love story, the label, started in 1931, is big on giving back to the community and allows purchasers to donate to a cause of their choice like Children’s Memorial Hospital Medical Research Board of Chicago and Autism Speaks.
le Dress will stock two pieces from Henry & Belle. We’re partial to the Super Skinny ($132), a form-fitting style that has been spotted on stars like Ashley Greene, Amy Adams, and past Michigan Avenue cover girl, Emmy Rossum. 1741 W. Division St., 773-697-9899
