Town & Country

'On the Town in Chicago' by David Masello
'When the Chicago-based women's wear designer Maria Pinto opened her first retail shop in the city's West Loop neighborhood last summer, she wanted to create a place where, as she describes it, 'I could keep my head clear.' She is referring not only to her tranquil pearl-gray boutique, one wall of which is covered with a mural replicating her trademark lacework, but also to the fact that she has decided to stay in Chicago, her hometown. ' Racks of intricately detailed dresses and tops fill her 2100 square foot shop, conceived by Chicago interior designer Scott Heuvelhorts and Architect Elissa Scrafano of Scrafano Architects.'
