A sleek new look was debuted for Bergdorf Goodman’s main floor yesterday afternoon in the latest addition to the department store’s overhaul which has also included a new shoe salon and jewelry section called “The Jewel Box” within the past year. Much of this new vision has been devised by President, Joshua Schulman, and Senior Vice President, Linda Fargo, who covers this week’s print issue of The New York Observer.
While taking a break from her runway show schedule, Fargo gathered her favorite clientele and designers including Dennis Basso, jeweler Jennifer Creel, fashion lawyer Elizabeth Kurpis, and style star Miroslava Duma to celebrate the completion of the main floor, which came chock full of coveted goods, mostly in the form of handbags.
Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Prada, Valentino, Balenciaga, Fendi, and Anya Hindmarch, whose fuzzy, Pac Man inspired bag was a crowd favorite, all designed signature accessories to mark the reopening. As one would expect, the bags will be sold exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman, though several, including a $2,950 mini python shoulder bag by Tom Ford and a $3,950 Nancy Gonzalez crocodile tote have already sold out.
