Bloomingdale's Goes British for Fall
August 13, 2013 | Style & Beauty
Bloomingdale's reaches across the pond this fall to bring exclusive items and capsule collections nodding British style (and of course, The Beatles) stateside. Launching in stores this September, there will be must-haves for men, women, and the home—from a punk-style Cambridge Satchel Company tote to cufflinks in the shape of John Lennon's iconic specs.
For men, brands such as Burberry, Ted Baker, and Paul Smith will offer British fashion essentials ranging from dapper suits to dark denims. Accessories include Beatles-centric pocket squares, scarves, and umbrellas. And for the ladies there will be sumptuous cashmere sweaters by Aqua, Union Jack-printed denim by Hudson, and more from All Saints, Karen Miller, and Reiss. Our personal favorite? A pair of Kardinale smoking slippers with Swarovski-embellished Union Jacks.
And for die-hard anglophiles, Bloomingdale's is partnering with national tourism board VisitBritain on custom British travel packages exploring England, Scotland, and Wales. So you can potentially shop for a "holiday" and new vacation duds in one spot.
