Taking the lead from the modern bohemian aesthetic as inspiration, the newest collection is described by Pina Ferlisi, Henri Bendel’s Creative Director as “boho beach meets Boho sport.”
Blush pinks, vibrant blues, and new riffs on the signature brown and white stripe round out the Henri Bendel spring 2015 collection when it comes to handbags, with some ombré, a touch of neon,a terrific, sophisticated butterfly print, and great texture via perforation, straw, and woven fabrications are also in the mix. The jewelry lineup is straight forward and simultaneously versatile, subtly featuring the latest trends including ear jackets, fluid metal cuffs, figure 8 stacked rings, tassels, the use of pearls, and asymmetrical shaping.
As always, small leather good abound by way of wallets, iPhone cases, and jewelry books, along with items to get you thinking about the warmer weather to come, such as jelly flip flops, over sized canvas totes, straw hats, delightful sunglasses, beach-infused candles like “Boho Beach” and “Ocean Mist,” and statement-making, stylish luggage, apropos for a tropical island getaway. See the slideshow above for some of my favorites from Henri Bendel’s summer preview, with most pieces becoming available online and in-store for purchase in April, May, and June.
