Eyelet, Lace, Tulle and Embroidery at Bergdorf Goodman

Clothes and shoes all by Valentino.

After the L’École Van Cleef & Arpels evening discussion “Great American Collectors, Then & Now” at the Cooper-Hewitt, I stopped by Bergdorf Goodman to have a look at their windows. The backgrounds were totally bare on the 58th Street side of the store, allowing the focus to be on the glamorous dresses, which were pastel confections of eyelet, lace, tulle, and embroidery. I loved these very feminine looks, especially with the cotton candy hair on the mannequins!

I love this multicolored eyelet dress by Valentino.

Side details of the Valentino dresses and skirt.
Is it just me or does that Valentino skirt, above, seem like it is made of suede?

L to R: Dresses by Burberry Prorsum, Julien Macdonald, and Monique L’huillier.

L to R: Dresses by Delpozo, Balenciaga, and Self-Portrait.

Detail of the upper back of the dress. And note that huge bracelet!


Detail of the lower half of the dress. I love the mixture of textures!

The Balenciaga dress on the right has stunning details.

I love the pleating in the bodice and the texture of the skirt.

The Fifth Avenue side of the store featured one-of-a-kind tapestry sculptures by Frederique Morrel. My favorite looks there were the embroidered dress by Valentino and the shift by Andrew Gn.

I loved this unusual window on the 5th Avenue side of the store.

A great sequined version of the Lady Dior bag! Sculpture by Frederique Morrel.

Let me know which of these fancy little summer numbers is your favorite!

Hi Pam and Deja, glad you liked the pictures, I always love to share BG windows, no matter the time of year! xx

Hi Rosie! I think they may have changed some of the windows on 5th Avenue, when I passed by there last week two of the windows were being dressed. Let me know what you think of anything new. And there were lots of gorgeous gems at both Bulgari and Van Cleef & Arpels! xx
