There’s a whole lot going on at Bloomingdale’s this spring, and it’s centered around some of our favorite designers. The iconic retailer has gathered the collective strength of Wings & Horns, Champion by Todd Snyder, Saturdays Surf, Gant Rugger and Steven Alan all together in one place. It’s the hard work of a great group of very well respected people including Fashion Director Kevin Harter and his deputy Josh Peskowitz â€” two men who I know and respect tremendously.
What Bloomingdale’s does so well is bring together designers and brands on many different levels â€” from the aforementioned, to up and comers like Eidos Napoli and so much more â€” that create an amazing critical mass of good things. As someone who routinely find themselves at Bloomingdale’s famed 59th Street flagship working my way through the vast offerings of so many of my favorite designers (or taking respite at FLIP, which is a guilty pleasure indeed), I’ve come to know that there’s always something interesting to see and shop. Even the Bloomingdale’s Men’s Shop merchandise has reached new heights under the tutelage of Peskowitz. It’s a powerful collection of good brands, good design and most importantly good people all united in the name of Bloomingdale’s.
