Channel Your Inner Cowgirl At This New Water Tower Shop

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, we've got a brand-new boutique to covet. Cuadra, a Mexican line with an emphasis on exquisite leather craftsmanship, just opened its first U.S. store right here in the Windy City — think Ralph Lauren goes to Mexico, or East Coast Traditional meets the Wild West.
The brand has a true rustic luxury: Each piece is carefully handcrafted with premium leather by expert artisans. And, hand-knitting is just the tip of the cowboy boot — the full collection of beautifully treated leathers comes in purses, boots, jackets, and tons of other forms. While you’re there, add a little color to your new leather ensemble with a printed blouse. Whatever you're craving, this funky-chic shop has it in spades.
When: Mondays through Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Where: Cuadra, Water Tower Place, 835 North Michigan (between Chestnut and Pearson streets); no phone.
