Long before their PS1 handbags were a dime a dozen outside Lincoln Center and editors sat pining at their screens over their patchwork leathers, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez were just two rookie designers making their much-buzzed-about debut at New York Fashion Week. Needless to say, they’ve come a long way, but Barneys New York is tapping into that initial excitement with an exclusive capsule collection of updated pieces from fall 2003, aptly called, “Proenza Schouler: First Collection.”
Barneys New York is planning to revamp all of its Co-op stores, and the first step is to renovate and re-brand major NYC and LA outposts. We want to know: will the Co-ops still be “cheap”?
“Who’s my plus one to events? I don’t get invited to these events!” Sharon Socol joked Tuesday night at a Barneys New York party. In fact, the night was all about Socol, who is married to former Barneys CEO Howard Socol. As his plus one to many an event over the years, Sharon snapped candid photos at parties, shows, backstage — you name it. She compiled the crème de la crème into her first book “Plus One: An Outsider’s Photographic Journey Into the World of Fashion”, and of course, we there there to celebrate with her.

But Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, and others got more than just the high-fashion treatment — they all went on a digital diet.
Get’em before they’re gone!
We have a weakness for jewelry here, and these earrings are some serious wearable art.
Amanda Brooks resigned from Barneys in March, and she seems serious about leaving the fashion world behind for that farm in England. The former fashion director is even donating her designer duds to benefit the New York City Opera.
When Amanda Brooks left Barneys in March, rumors swirled. The fashion VIP had been fashion director of the fancy department store for mere seconds (or so it seemed) when she announced she was jumping ship and moving to England. Why did she leave, and why so quickly?
In an announcement that surprised just about everyone this morning, Barneys vice president and fashion director Amanda Brooks has resigned.
If the title of Simon Doonan‘s new book Gay Men Don’t Get Fat offends you, it’s probably just because you haven’t made it past the cover yet.
This was the week we finally saw the Twilight wedding dress. We also saw offensive billboards, tween thongs, and Thanksgiving style advice. But also awesome puppies! And Muppets! And Obamas!
The holiday season is officially upon us, and Barneys knows just where you want to shop: Gaga’s Workshop.
What does one wear when celebrating a very special night at Barneys? Custom Chanel, of course.
Derek Lam‘s new secondary line 10 Crosby is a venture into new territory for the designer, but just because he’s making slightly lower priced clothes doesn’t mean he’s ready to jump into the fray of designer collaborations.
