Bergdorf Goodman to Unfurl ‘Designers Off Duty,’ Showcasing Hidden Talents

Next week, Bergdorf Goodman will launch “Designers Off Duty,” a monthly series that will showcase the hidden talents and hobbies of such designers as Phillip Lim, Jason Wu, Sander Lak of Sies Marjan, Adam Lippes, Wes Gordon of Carolina Herrera, and Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia of Oscar de la Renta.
Lim will kick off the series Monday night with a cooking class for VIP customers and friends, featuring recipes from his recently launched cookbook, “More Than Our Bellies.” Guests will be invited to an intimate dinner at the Bergdorf Goodman restaurant where recipes from Lim’s cookbook will be served. There is no charge to participate and it’s open to a mix of VIP customers, friends of the brand and media.
“We have had a long partnership with BG, they have been supporting the brand for over a decade, and I am excited for the opportunity to share a more personal side of myself with my cookbook,” said Lim. “‘More Than Our Bellies,’ is a vehicle — much like my clothes — to continue to express love.” Lim said he’s eager to outfit his customers with clothes for the day and nurture them with food for the evening “as it is all

Schiaparelli to Open Pop-Up Store at Bergdorf Goodman

NEW DIGS: Schiaparelli will open a pop-up store at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City on Oct. 18, marking the first time since its relaunch that the couture house will be available outside its salons in Paris.
The temporary store on the fourth floor will carry Story#1, the brand’s new ready-to-wear collection dedicated to Man Ray, alongside its first handbag, The Secret. Bergdorf Goodman plans to celebrate the exclusive partnership with a dedicated window display, an online look book and the cover of BG Magazine’s Holiday Luxe Book.
“I can’t imagine another place more aligned with the spirit of Schiaparelli than Bergdorf Goodman,” said Linda Fargo, senior vice president, fashion office and store presentation at Bergdorf Goodman.
“We are both utterly unique entities. We both believe deeply in beauty and excellence and the exquisite. We fully appreciate that we are their first home away from home, and that Schiaparelli is more than clothes…it’s an immersion in a place and a feeling. It’s not rushed. It’s personal and rare,” she added.
The window display on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 58th Street will be designed by David Hoey, senior director, visual presentation at Bergdorf Goodman, in collaboration with the Man Ray Trust, which is

Borgo de Nor Toasts Landing at Bergdorf Goodman

One-year-old label Borgo de Nor has landed in the States. Founders Carmen Borgonovo and Joana de Noronha toasted the launch of the spring collection at Bergdorf Goodman Thursday evening with an intimate cocktail on the sixth floor, where the brand will sit as an entry-level designer.
“In a way, it’s the first time we’re here in the States showing it to press,” said Borgonovo, a former fashion editor who also cut her teeth at my-wardrobe.com, where she grew to understand margins, fits and which products sell well.
The ethos of the brand focuses on vibrant prints on a range of fluid silhouettes that transition from city to holiday. For spring, custom graphic florals were rendered in bright yellow, orange, red and blue, along with a surreal garden print inspired by a Man Ray painting of Lee Miller featuring a lip motif for an element of the playfully unexpected. The prints are often informed by art, with another floral pattern inspired by a Gaugain painting.
It’s easy to imagine any of the lightweight, flirty silhouettes dressed up with heels for a wedding, especially the ruffled multiprinted number made to party. But there’s an inherent versatility which makes the dresses equally appropriate in the city

The 400-square-foot shop, which will open on Friday on the third floor, has a New York Made theme and is inspired by basketball. The shops-in-shop resembles a deconstructed basketball court and features leather, cork and wood with white finishes along with hanging fixtures.
“We have always admired Nike’s forward design sensibility and approach to performance and technical apparel and footwear,” said Melissa Lowenkron, senior vice president and general merchandising manager for men’s, women’s footwear, handbags and beauty at Bergdorf’s. “Their pursuit of innovative collaborations has placed them at the forefront of fashion and speaks directly to our customers’ interests and lifestyle.”
Nike currently operates eight stand-alone NikeLab locations in major cities including New York, London, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Paris, Tokyo and Milan. There are also four additional spaces within Dover Street Market shops around the world.
