Henri Bendel

The upscale Fifth Avenue retailer also offers cosmetics, fragrances, bath and body products and home accents including frames and candles.

Haute Fashion Since 1895

The distinctive Henri Bendel brown and white striped shopping bags have been a sign of stylish and sophisticated shoppers for over a hundred years. Established in 1895, this women’s specialty department store offers a broad range of beauty products and accessories ranging from hard-to-find artisanal perfumes to the signature brown and white clutches and barrel bags. From Gossip Girl-inspired headbands to sparkling stackable bangles, Henri Bendel’s is the place for adding a distinctive touch to your ensemble.

Always Something New

Whether you seek the newest Kooba tote or a glamourous leather iPad sleeve, Henri Bendel’s has a selection of merchandise that is cutting-edge and a cut above. This chic retailer has a history of kick-starting the careers of exciting new designers. Some of the fashion industry’s hottest names including Anna Sui and Todd Oldham were launched by Bendel’s “Open-See” event. This designer casting call takes place twice a year and offers emerging talent the chance to showcase their work on a first-come, first-see basis.

A New York City Landmark

Henri Bendel was located on West 57th Street for many years until moving in 1990 to its current home on one of the most famous shopping stretches in the world: Fifth Avenue. The flagship location of Henri Bendel is now housed in three renovated historic townhouses, one of which was the storefront for French perfumer François Coty in the early 20th century. Renovations to the Coty building revealed stunning original decorative glass windows designed by Rene Lalique, the celebrated French glassmaker. The discovery of these works of art helped make the Bendel building an official New York City landmark.

Fekkai's Flagship

The historic Fifth Avenue Henri Bendel store has a special feature on the fourth floor- a Frédéric Fekkai hair salon. The celebrity hair stylist has locations of his luxurious salon in tony spots like Melrose Place and Palm Beach but he chose Bendel's on Fifth for his flagship.
