NEW YORK — Polo Ralph Lauren plans to bring a new lifestyle concept to Bergdorf Goodman, which will involve doubling the size of the existing in-store boutique on the store's sixth floor. The boutique aims to bring together the world of Ralph Lauren, mixing pieces from Ralph Lauren Collection and Black Label lines as well as vintage looks and an assortment of accessories. Currently, Lauren's boutique at Bergdorf's focuses on the Black Label line.
"This is something that we have wanted to implement for some time," said Jacki Nemerov, Polo's executive vice president, in a statement. "It is an exciting opportunity for us to present our brands together in a cohesive atmosphere, allowing the Bergdorf's shopper to fully experience the world of Ralph Lauren."
Lauren's team will work closely with that of Bergdorf's to create the design and execution of the new concept, slated to bow in fall 2008.
"By creating a compelling mix of product for Bergdorf Goodman in a one-of-a-kind environment, we are offering our customers a Ralph Lauren retail experience unlike any other specialty store," Jim Gold, Bergdorf's president and chief executive officer, added.
In October, Bergdorf Goodman held its first party for Ralph Lauren to celebrate the Rizzoli book "Ralph Lauren," with all its Fifth Avenue windows devoted to the designer, who marked his 40th anniversary in business this year.

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.
