THE RUM HOUSE: It’s been a long day. The train was late, Bergdorf’s was too crowded and the help was slow, the dress was no longer on sale, the family never called – perhaps it was yesterday’s argument over tea. Getting a cab was impossible. Must keep an eye on the watch, the cat at home will want dinner soon. Maybe there’s interesting mail today – maybe not. Maybe brunch with the girls tomorrow – maybe not. Here’s to the ladies who lunch. Does anyone still wear a hat? I’ll drink to that.
REFLECTION OF BERGDORF: Designer AKRIS, has designed the quintessential 111th year anniversary dress for Bergdorf Goodman and ‘Fashion’s Night Out’. It is has the appearance of a reflection of Bergdorf printed on to the dress. When admirers first stop by the window to marvel at the sleek design it isn’t at first noticed the matching cashmere coat has a mirror image of the store faintly lined inside.
The lines are 1950’s Audrey Hepburn classic! Flowing yet constructed, sheer elegance in the simplicity of the design, reflecting Bergdorf’s reputation of sophisticated chic.
