Plus, a few key styling tips to keep your cargos looking polished.
Thank you, Julie Gilhart, for giving us the opportunity to shop efficiently and early for our fall wardrobe!
Next Wednesday, April 21, Gilhart and Barneys will host a one-day trunk show event on the Co-op floor of the Barneys Madison flagship. From 2 p.m. until 8 p.m. the shopping day will feature designer appearances, special limited-edition items, and of course early fall shopping.
“The Co-op customer runs a little faster and dances to a different beat, so we are reinventing the trunk show concept for them,” said Gilhart, Barneys senior vice president and fashion director.
A.L.C., 3.1 Phillip Lim, Rag & Bone, Shipley & Halmos, Alexander Wang, Helmut Lang, Richard Chai-LOVE, Vena Cava, VPL, and Wayne are participating, so brush up on these fall shows and place orders early to guarantee key pieces make it into your wardrobe.
Barneys Co-op is set to expand in New York and California. The year has started off well for Barneys with comparable-store sales up consistently from January through March. Comparisons with last year's double-digit declines might be easy, but the retailer is feeling optimistic with a strong customer response online and among brands like Lanvin, Dries Van Noten, Azzedine Alaïa, and Celine. Immediate expansion plans include an upcoming co-op in Brooklyn at 194 Atlantic Avenue in Cobble Hill, set to open mid-September, and a Santa Moncia co-op scheduled for August in Santa Monica Place. Barneys currently operates 19 co-op stores.

Jessica, you always turn up the style volume. While many PYTs attended InStyle's annual Summer soiree in LA, Jessica stood out in a simple, ultra-chic LBD. Her black strapless lace insert dress is a modern take on the '80s trend and fits perfectly. Her black deep-v pumps are Robert Palmer girl-esque, while a Le Vian diamond bracelet is understated. Glam rockin' blue nail polish adds a youthful touch.

Modern mules are back with a vengeance. I know, it's hard to step out of your comfort zone, but Fab has your back. Notice how new cuts range from feminine and sexy to hard rock cool. Me? I prefer something in the middle like these Taupe Barneys Co-Op Slingback Mules ($495). It's the ultimate balance between funky and fancy. Oh, did I mention modern mules are also quite comfy?
Check it: studded boots aren't just for the rough and tough biker babes. Today, any girl with a little bit of funk in her can sport these badass, embellished boots. Notice how Sienna Miller, English model Sarah Harding, and Megan Fox wore studded boots in very different ways. Sienna looked like a bohemian girl in a slouchy, suede pair by Vivienne Westwood; Sarah took the rocker route — with her utterly adorable Frenchie — in a hard-hitting strappy pair; while Megan stayed California cool and paired her slick, knee-high boots with jeans and a bright cardi.

I am really digging this Loomstate for Barneys Green Slave Mini Skirt, on sale for $89 (originally $138). I can see myself wearing it on a shopping excursion with a dark grey tank and silver gladiator sandals.
