By now hordes of passersby have stopped to look at our New York flagship’s Glam Gardens windows, packed with dozens upon dozens of thousands of flowers. With 30 windows in total, it’s a beauty undertaking unlike any in Saks’ rich history and we couldn’t be prouder of the moment. Here’s an initial look at some of the most mesmerizing installations on the Fifth Avenue entrance of our store.
It was an incredible Fall 2015 season full of looks we can’t wait to have at Saks in the coming months. It all ends at Paris Fashion Week, where the mode is always haute. Take a look at some of the highlights from the last leg of Fashion Month.
Abstract Animal Skin Prints at Dior
Dior: For fall Raf Simons focused on the idea of animals and the abstraction of their patterns. There were slightly oversized masculine tailored blazers and double-breasted overcoats. The second skin catsuits from Dior’s last haute couture collection made a ready-to-wear turn here as well, bedecked in abstract animal patterns. There was a 60s flair here, with mini shift dresses and coats, styled with skin-tight vinyl over-the-knee boots. Not to mention incredible dyed fox coats in lilac and aqua.
Karl Lagerfeld Orchestrates a Grand Demonstration in True Fashionable Form
The eve of a CHANEL show, whether it be resort, haute couture or ready-to-wear, is always a fun mind-scramble. You can’t help but flex a bit of imaginative muscle before Karl Lagerfeld presents at the Grand Palais – cooking up ideas of your own on what he’s going to pull off this time.
There’s no shortage of chic hotels in Miami Beach, but the soon-to-open St. Regis in Bal Harbour opening on January 19 has what is arguably the city’s most fashionable address: oceanfront on Collins Avenue, directly across from the Shops at Bal Harbour, a shopping mecca filled with Saks, Lanvin, Chanel, Celine, Prada. The Yabu Pushelberg -designed property winks at Miami’s Rat Pack heyday, with oversized raw rock crystal chandeliers in the entryway and citrine-colored walls in the Remedè Spa. But, at its core, the experience is all about modern, relaxed luxury, with extra-large rooms (all with terraces and ocean views) and poolside cabanas that are more like mini-apartments than a quick place to cool
down. And, after a day of swimming, sunning, or shopping, there’s the restaurant helmed by Jean-Georges Vongerichten — an ideal hotspot for a leisurely dinner (even if you’re staying farther down in South Beach) or small plates and cocktails with friends.
