On a totally rainy and disgusting fall day here in NYC I was invited to celebrate spring. Well spring accessories that is. I took the opportunity to visit Henri Bendel on Fifth Avenue to check out their Spring ’13 preview. For those of you that might not be aware, a few years ago Bendel’s became an all-accessories department store. When I was pregnant with my first child I would wander around the store between appointments. It was the only store I knew everything would fit!
Now I know we all have the impending holidays on the brain and the last thing we want to think of is spring, but let’s take a moment to enjoy some of the items that will be available at Henri Bendel stores nationwide and online in January.
This tote bag was my favorite and under $700. The hardware is amazing. Of course it is the most expensive bag in the Henri Bendel collection! It’s a knack of mine.
Lots of raffia and texture.
Triple strand necklaces in silver, gold and rose gold.
I loved this entire collection, especially the pearl bracelet.
Loved this cuff with the rose gold buckle.
Smoking slippers that roll up to fit easily in your bag? Yes please!
I had no idea until that day that Henri Bendel has their own sunglass line, but they do.
Clutches are going to be big…again. These had wallet compartments inside.
Going back to the old logo, which I love and appreciate. If you have never tried a Bendel candle, you should.
The iconic brown and ivory stripes!
So much in this particular display I wanted: the contact lens case, pill case (with 3 bottles) and the eye glass case and I’m always looking for a card case with a key ring!
The cork and neon box clutch on the bottom right is ultra cool.
Green, green and more brown!
