Fashion continues to remain youth and collaboration obsessed. Henri Bendels has announced it will be launching a limited 150 double cardigan sweater collaboration with Victor Glemaud. Traditionally a menswear designer, this will be the first time that Glemaud tackles womenswear. The sweaters will come in three combos, pale gray and bright pink; black and charcoal gray, and camel and leopard print. The 100 percent cashmere sweaters are accented with shiny gold buttons and will retail for $348 each starting this August. Bendel's vice president and fashion director, Ann Watson hopes to collaborate with a designer at least once a season. We supposed we should simply be pleased we won't have to borrow our boyfriend's cardigans anymore.
Yesterday, I had one of the most exciting breakfasts of my life. My friends at Total Beauty invited me to the Henri Bendel beauty breakfast, a twice-yearly event that showcases new products and lines for dozens of beauty editors. I'd heard about the event for years, but being there was better than I could have expected. I took a few pictures so that you can get an idea of the scene. Read on and take a virtual trip with me!
Although getting stuck in the snow is no fun, it sure looks good on the Fabionista in Henri Bendel's 2007 Collectible Snowglobe ($48). She's carrying more bags and boxes than she can handle, she's freezing despite her opaque tights, but she still looks put together and chic. If only it were so easy in reality. Wouldn't this be the loveliest addition to your workspace? Affirmative!

"Part of the spectacular display Henri Bendel has put together both in the windows and throughout the store.
It's like a surrealist winter wonderland full of golden birds, glowing stars, and all the kind of holiday gifts I'd most want: gorgeous handbags, perfumes and beauty products straight from my dreams, unbelievable scented candles, designer clothing not found anywhere else, exotic chocolates... and now, my favorite gadgets."
The Popgadget store is at Henri Bendel located on 712 5th Avenue, near 56th street and will be open till the beginning of January.
It's oft namedropped by the Gossip Girls and happens to be one of my favorite Fifth Avenue flagships, and this is one serious step forward for womankind. Henri Bendel has staked out its proverbial territory in the world wide web by launching its first web site, HenriBendel.com! The site is full of party pictures, fashion tips, event listings, and even a little e-shopping. Accessories, beauty products and gift items are all available now, and some branded products will be introduced next month, including accessories from Ted Rossi and Kooba.
