For the ladies, P45 is a homegrown designer label with a store in Wicker Park. Featured in Wallpaper, Lucky and In Style, P45 is definitely a boutique and they have some interesting fashions, clean cuts and offer something different than your Gap-dominated clothing. Though not quite affordable (comparable to some of the big names), it's nice to see Chicago represent. I am intrigued by this particular get-up. A few bondage-inspired pieces never hurt anyone.
