Barneys New York

Looking for the latest Balenciaga handbag or Diane Von Furstenburg dress? Head straight to Barneys New York for the hottest designs straight off the runways. The Madison Avenue flagship store of this luxury retail chain is a fashion institution and the very definition of New York chic. It’s also a favourite shopping destination for style icon Sarah Jessica Parker, who famously said in a Vanity Fair interview that “If you're a nice person and you work hard, you get to go shopping at Barneys. It's the decadent reward.”

The History

Barneys New York has a history of appealing to discerning shoppers. In 1923, Barney Pressman opened Barney’s Clothes with a small selection of brand name men’s suits and the slogan, "No Bunk, No Junk, No Imitations." The store grew into a chain of luxury department stores offering an upscale selection of women’s and men’s apparel as well as accessories, home furnishings and beauty products, with the name Barneys becoming synonymous with class, style and good taste.

The Store

The Barneys New York headquarters is nine storeys of luxury retail. High fashion abounds with collections from dozens of luxury European fashion houses such as Givenchy, Fendi, Burberry and Armani. Shoe lovers have their choice of dozens of the trendiest styles from favourites such as Chloe, Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik.
