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.
Barneys finally unveiled its controversial “Electric Holiday” video at the New York City flagship store on Wednesday night. The full five-minute digital short is available on the retailer’s website, and we got a good look at what the uproar about “skinny Minnie” was all about.
For the holiday season, Barneys and Disney teamed up on what sounded like a cool collaboration — our favorite animated characters were getting all gussied up in fashionable wares for a short 3D film. 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.
Yesterday morning, over several much needed shots of cappuccino at Barneys, Christopher Kane debuted his second capsule collection for J.Brand Jeans. And in true Kane form, they’re neon.
If you’re not following Barneys fashion director Amanda Brooks on Twitter, you’re missing out on a view into one of the coolest stores in the luxury fashion space. So last night, when Barneys celebrated the re-opening of the freshly overhauled CO-OP space in its New York flagship, we asked Brooks a few questions about her 140-character musings on style and shopping.
Jason Ascher holds the coveted title of Barneys Beauty Guru, so we really listen to the man when he doles out beauty advice and product recommendations. And with the new season (it’s fall, you guys!) comes a new slew of must-haves!
Lately, Barney’s Creative Ambassador-At-Large Simon Doonan has been thinking a lot about hair. For the first time in recent memory, there’s a good deal of it on his face — and it’s also all over the bag he designed for Patti Hansen‘s new charity venture Hung On U.
