Video via The Window. And I am just like, “So? We’re locked in. There’s food, there are clothes, there’s me, there’s Simon. There’s Givenchy. Let’s stay.”
In case that wasn’t clear, we are locked in Barneys and Simon Doonan is very excited about it! So much so, I just used one of the only two exclamation points an old teacher once told me I am allowed as a writer during the course of my “career.” That said, let’s talk what’s important, like a neon Proenza Schouler sack shaped midi slip dress, that is, yes, neon and at last still relevant–how do they do that? Other very important things: Kenzo peek-a-boo tent jackets and the new shoe floor on five at Barney’s. “Perfect Pairs,” they say. Because there’s something for everyone. Even your crazy uncle Sal.
It’s scary–but only in the same way that the Celine boutique is, and large. Cool, too–but not with the help of a refrigerator. A very good place to take your wallet should you find yourself in the market to rid its contents in a simple series of seconds. How many designer names can you spurt out in 3 minutes?
I am always excited to partner with Barneys, much more when Simon Doonan is involved and wearing crystal peep peep toe heels with striped socks while I mix drinks for us. He’s one of a kind, you know? I imagine the construction of the new fifth floor shoe section was built in line with the notion that one-of-a-kind folk (you) deserve to give their feet a 1OAK shopping experience…even if you don’t turn out buying anything, because that’s just the kind of experience it is.
Now circling back to the locked in chunk of this, what would you do overnight at Barneys? Something saucy, I know. Just tell me.
