Inspired by nature and Impressionist art, rich tones such as olive, Viking red, cognac, and soft floral appliqué adornment mingle with anticipated neutrals in silhouettes both signature and new at Henri Bendel for fall 2016. This season the W 57th Schoolbag debuts, and the Soho Backpack proves that the back-strapping style isn’t going away any time soon. As the weather will inevitably turn colder, expect a great array of accessories to stylishly combat the chill, such as leather gloves, scarves, capes and fur hats. And don’t forget about the jewels! Lovely pearl-motif pieces in a deep, dark hue make their way into the fall lineup, which, coupled with the Impressionist art inspiration, feels like the right moment for a fashionable revival.

Boy, are you in for a treat! I’ve got a sneak peak at Henri Bendel for Spring 2014, featuring amazing handbags, wallets, jewelry, sunglasses, luggage, scarves, and more. If you’ve been feeling a major “treat yourself” moment coming on, this upcoming season’s goodies at the storied retailer will surely push you to go for it. I’m especially excited about Henri Bendel Luxe, a new a premium line of layerable necklaces, pendants, earrings, bangles and rings, taking a nod from the aesthetics found in fine jewelry, for a price that works for all. You’ll find a variety of semi-precious stones and Swarovski crystals set in color tones of 18K gold, rose gold, and platinum for that sophisticated look. You won’t have to wait too long to shop the pieces, with most arriving in store in April, and the rest following in May and June.
See the slideshow above for my top picks, including descriptions and pricing information.

It’s no secret that I LOVE accessories (if you haven’t seen it yet, check out the Fashion Pulse Daily accessories Tumblr site!), so getting a look ahead of time at the Henri Bendel Spring 2014 collection was absolutely thrilling. From shiny metals to soft pastels, buttery leather to glistening crystals, Henri Bendel’s brand of bags, timepieces, small leather goods, electronic cases, and jewelry hits all of the right style notes for spring.
See the slideshow above for the pics that I took of my favorite items, sure to make their way into my closet once they hit the shelves in the spring. Not in New York City? No problem! You can always shop at HenriBendel.com, 24 hours a day, and in the meanwhile, don’t forget to check out the Holiday Shop (I have my eye on Carlyle Caviar Tote!]

Ferlisi points out the key fob on the Sutton Satchel; with subtle Henri Bendel branding, it can be displayed on the outside of the bag, or hidden away and tucked inside the exterior pocket.
Another Ferlisi favorite for fall: the Carlyle North/South tote, two toned bag, which Ferlisi has already been using non-stop in black!

It is a shame that you have to wait a few months to shop the amazing accessories from Henri Bendel (roll-outs begin in June, July, and August), but once in your hand, the anticipation and build up for the item(s) will certainly be worth it! As the first full collection under the careful tutelage of Henri Bendel Creative Director Pina Ferlisi, who prior, had worked for McQ, Coach, Gap, and Generra amongst others, you can expect the most amazing on-trend, yet enduring styles that include thoughtful details, buttery soft leather, gorgeous hardware, and covetable color options.
Ferlisi walked me through the collection, pulling out her favorite pieces and demo-ing the details, which I’ve outlined via the slide show above. As always, Bendels has at the ready some wonderful jewelry and small leather goods, including lace leather gloves, wallets, luggage, and tech accessories. I am obsessed with the Deluxe Girlfriend Beaded Wrap Bracelet, available in new color options for fall, along with the pyramid stud mini wallet in blue!
