Like New York itself, this iconic blue chip department store is a place of constant reinvention possessing a rare ability to meet the unyielding taste of both the old and new guards. As a high-fashion player, Barney’s is unparalleled, having – at one time or another – offered exclusives with ultra-covetable fashion labels such as Azzedine Alaïa, Prada and Proenza Schouler. There’s also an epic cosmetics floor, lavish bridal department and bespoke services for men including suiting and formal wear. For those without black Amex cards, the store is an experience in its own right, having elevated the art of window-shopping by engaging the likes of leading artists (Alex Katz) cultural figures (Baz Luhrmann) and music superstars (Jay Z and Lagy Gaga) to curate exclusive events and one-off in-store experiences.
