Allegro Dance Boutique is Yumiko’s newest retailer! The Yumis are coming October 12, 2013!!

That’s right. YUMIKO. For those of you familiar with this exquisite brand of handmade dancewear, no words from us are necessary (we can practically hear your squeals).

For those that we have the privilege of introducing to this exclusive line, we think you’ll soon fall in love. YUMIKO Dancewear is handmade in Spain, is of the highest quality and is on the cutting edge of fashion, putting it in a class all its own. Once you start to rock the Yumiko look, your Yumiko will return the favor by providing you with years of lasting wear and impeccable condition. Professional dancers the world over wear Yumikos, and you may recall seeing actresses Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis donning Yumis in Black Swan? We’re so honored to begin carrying Yumiko products in our two boutiques this fall. In fact, we join only nine other boutiques in the country, and eleven total worldwide as a YUMIKO retailer.

So mark your calendars for October 12 and share in the excitement of our new arrivals! Our Barrington location will showcase a selection of sleek, sophisticated black leotards while our Evanston location will feature leotards in a variety of stunning colors, including black, all from the Yumiko Fall 2013 Retailer Collection. All leotards are available in adult XS-L.

Just in case you were wondering about the all caps, YUMIKO the company has its name that way to differentiate between YUMIKO the brand and Yumiko the person. We like it because we usually are exclaiming when we say it anyway.

When do you plan on getting your second shipment in of Yumikos at either location(I am assuming there is not much left from October shipment?!). Will you have them around the holidays?
About how many size smalls do/did you order or get?

Thanks so much!

Hi Megan!

The Spring/Summer retailer collection usually ships in April. We won’t know exactly when it will arrive until closer to the date, but we will surely make announcements as soon as we know more!
We order lots of smalls, but as for all Yumiko orders – once they’re gone, they’re gone and cannot be reordered, so coming early is always best!

As for the fall collection, we do still have some colors left (in Small), and have some cool black yumis still available too!

hello! I was wondering If the spring/summer shipment has come yet?

Hello! Our Spring Yumiko shipment will be arriving in early May (2014). We will announce a specific date very soon!

Hello, I was wondering if you would be getting any male biketards in your next shipment. I bought one when the Russina store downtown was still open and loved it. Please let me know if you plan on getting in, thanks! :)

I was wondering if you had gotten the yumikos in yet. If so are there any left and when will your next shipment come in in the fall?

the allegro team June 9, 2014 at 5:54 pm

Hi Mattie! We received our latest shipment on May 3, which means we have plenty of leotards left in the new Spring/Summer retailer collection at both stores. Our fall/winter shipment should be arriving September/October 2014.

Hi! I am attending Ballet Chicago’s Advanced Summer Intensive starting July 28th, and would like to visit your boutique the day before! Do you have many size XS and S yumikos left in a variety of styles? Thank you!

the allegro team June 30, 2014 at 4:07 pm

Hi Morgan! Yes, we do have plenty of XS and S Yumikos left from our latest collection. They went so fast last time, we were sure to order lots. Best of luck preparing for your intensive. We’ll see you in July!
