As any savvy shopper knows, Saks Fifth Avenue is always ahead of the curve. This month however, it’s a whole new set of curves as an updated, advanced and altogether unconventional Easter egg hunt comes to New York City. Naturally, we’re in the game.

The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt is here. The eggs? Oh, just 300 unique, two-foot egg sculptures created by the world’s leading artists and designers—including Jeff Koons, William Wegman and Carolina Herrera—displayed throughout NYC. The epicenter? Saks New York, home to eight eggs and the flagship of a citywide hunt that continues through April 17. The Easter egg basket? Your smartphone, naturally. Simply download the app and scan the QR codes at each stop. (An interactive map, updates and clues will help your search.)

Want more? There’s more. Saks New York and saks.com are selling handpainted, limited-edition replicas of some of our favorites through April 30. And if you really love the eggs you spot around town, they’ll be collected and displayed en masse at Rockefeller Center from April 18-26, then auctioned to benefit the Elephant Family and Studio in a School charities. Happy hunting, New York. Now get cracking!

Shop the limited-edition collectibles here.

Visit Saks New York through April 17 and find egg sculptures by artists William Wegman, Ran Hwang and Chelsea Hrynick Browne, designers Anna Corinna and Anna Trzebinski, architects Jonathan Schloss and Richard Mishaan, and a special Saks-themed egg.

Billy Reid: The Menswear Man

Saks Fifth Avenue welcomes the designer into the fold. Again.
Read More..

Menswear is on a bit of an upswing of late. And don’t take it from us (or the men’s fashion mags, for that matter): look no further than the inveterate success of one Billy Reid. Since his surprise win of the 2010 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award (beating boldfacers Joseph Altuzarra, Eddie Borgo and Prabal Gurung, no less), Reid has become one of menswear’s leading lights, all from his home base in tiny Florence, Alabama. Now, as his collection finally arrives at Saks Fifth Avenue, he’s coming back to where it all began.

Saks New York welcomed Reid on Wednesday night as he launched his Spring/Summer 2014 collection accompanied by a Q&A with Esquire Fashion Director Nick Sullivan. Beforehand, the designer chatted with us about the menswear resurgence and what Saks has meant to his career (spoiler: it’s meant a lot).

Menswear seems to matter more than ever right now. Do you agree?
Reid: Totally. There’s been really passionate editorial support throughout menswear recently. In the last five years or so, people are really getting out the information online. All of us in menswear have benefited.

And what does that exposure do?
Reid: Really, it ushers the customer along. The younger generation cares and stays on top of it—they know the brands, they know the designers, and they care about quality. They follow that stuff. People pay attention and thank goodness men pay attention to it now.

Saks Fifth Avenue is kind of where it all began for you, isn’t it?
Reid: I started my career here. I was going to school in Dallas and I got a job at Saks. They put me in men’s suits because I knew a little bit about it. I worked with these guys in their 50s and 60s—veteran menswear, made-to-measure guys.

Sounds like a good education.
Reid: Working at Saks was unbelievable. At that time, Ralph Lauren was starting to get big. Tommy Hilfiger had just started. Armani…Versace…I got to see all of them working at Saks, studying those collections and working with those companies. I learned from some really great people working there. I had no plan going in, but those years at Saks really laid the foundation for a lot of things.
