Perfect Pairings

Seeing this picture has me thinking about perfect couples. President and Mrs. Obama, you ask? They do come to mind, but actually I’m thinking of the First Lady looking fresh and glamorous in her Barbara Tfank dress. When we first saw it at Barbara’s presentation for the Fall 2010 collection, we felt inspired by her […]

Hare Raeburn

I went to the Fashion Week exhibition in London to check out the Spring 2011 Christopher Raeburn collection. LOVE! But what made it even better is the pop-up sewing factory he set up in his space. Using off-cut fabrics (for the stuffing, too) from the very jackets that land at Barneys, Christopher and his team […]

J.W. Hulme Give Their Stamp Of Approval

J.W. Hulme is the real thing. This American brand dating back to 1905 started with canvas tents for WWI. In the 1920’s they made bags for sportsmen and hunters. The bags are still handmade using American leather and hardware at their St. Paul, Minnesota factory. The J.W. Hulme bags carried at Barneys are modeled after […]

Doodle by Alexander Wang

Was at our appointment the last week, and Alex shared with us that the doodle print is a creation of his interns. Go interns! He asked them to sit down for 10 minutes, without any specific direction, around a single sheet of paper. Here it is – Alex’s S11 doodle print. – Tomoko Ogura,  Barneys […]

Nice Girls Finish First

Lauren Batchelder, the designer of Lauren Nevada, also happens to work at Barneys. We sit a few yards away from each other. I can see her naturally strawberry blonde head from my desk. She always makes me smile and has something funny or interesting to say every time I see her. She mentors girls at […]

Beautiful People

I couldn’t help but wonder during Fashion’s Night Out how much time people spent picking out their ensembles. I was guilty of shopping the weekend before to perfect my outfit, and I think it’s safe to say that many Barneys patrons probably put as much love and care into their looks as I did on […]
