From Popeye the Sailor Man and the Beatles to Psycho Bunny, Kevin Harter has added some interesting characters to Bloomingdale’s product mix over the past 22 years.
But while these unusual collaborations might get the most press, for Harter it’s all about providing balance. The vice president of fashion direction for men’s scours the world to find the most interesting and relevant brands and collections to add spice to the selling floor. Milan, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Stockholm and Japan are all in his travel budget. He calls it doing “ground intelligence” and says that even after all this time, he’s still “curious about what’s out there.”
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)

For her first solo album in over 10 years, Fergie tapped Carine Roitfeld, Mert and Marcus, Giovanni Bianco and more to create a fashion-focused video approach for the record, Double Dutchess.
