None of her really interesting pieces aside from a really sweet striped sweater (toooo expensive though). The DH stuff is mostly dress shirts and the like. Like others have said already, the footwear just plain sucks.

I'll have to check out the Cloak rack. I didn't notice it when I blew through there.

The buyer for womens should get a pat on the back. Rochas, Lanvin, Ann D., Rick Owens?! Solid. The Ann pieces were beautiful and there was this cropped and fitted jacket that was just stunningly sexy.

Overall, not bad... but I won't be buying anything before the sales time. Whereas Bilzerian carries more interesting items from the same designers as well as Carpe and McQueen etc. I'll still go to NYC for Atelier, IF, and others but Barneys is a nice addition to the Boston shopping scene for sure!
Agreed, Chino.

Yeah, I went on the 1st day that it was open to the public...Exciting labels, like Anne D, Branquinho, DiorHomme, Cloak & the mensline for Balenciaga, but not too many exciting pieces...Of course, the Cloak line really caught my attention, but the Anne D. line was slightly disappointing, but nowhere near as disappointing as the new JilSander line (yawn!)...I like a lot of the MMM pieces, but too bad my bank account doesnt..And IMO, they have the best PaulSmith pieces so far..

As for the footwear--c'mon, does Boston really need another place to buy shoes from Prada? I noticed Pirelli sneakers too, which is also carried by Saks..Geez, I didnt realize there was that much of a need for them in this city But, they do carry the NDC shoes, which I like a lot. The SA told me I was the first to buy them--yay for me!

All in all--not too shabby, not too shabby if I may say so myself...I wonder how it'll fare in the longrun..
