Bergdorf Goodman has tapped The New York Times to find its new men’s fashion director.
Bruce Pask, who has been men’s fashion director for T: The New York Times Style Magazine since 2006, will join the upscale retailer on March 31 and will report to Linda Fargo, Bergdorf’s senior vice president of the fashion office and store presentation. This is a new position for Bergdorf’s, since the role in the past had also included oversight of Neiman Marcus’ men’s fashion area. Matthew Singer was the men’s fashion director for Neiman Marcus Group and resigned at the end of last year.
At Bergdorf’s, Pask will be responsible for all seasonal trend messaging, and will work with the merchant team to select assortments and develop private label and the visual teams on in-store styling. He will also act as the stylist for all men’s advertising, including Bergdorf Goodman Magazine, and seasonal Goodman campaigns. Pask will serve as a spokesman for the company on men’s fashion.
Before joining the Times, Pask was fashion director for Cargo magazine from 2003 to 2006. He started his editorial career at GQ magazine. Pask has also worked as a freelance stylist for brands such as Brioni, Todd Snyder and Perry Ellis, and as a costume designer for Broadway plays and television shows.
Joshua Schulman, Bergdorf’s president, said Pask has “impeccable credentials in the men’s market. With the completion of the men’s store renovation, now is the perfect time for Bruce to join the company. I am confident his leadership, taste level, and deep understanding and love of men’s luxury product will have a significant impact on our business.”

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
