Sip n’ Shop at Henri Bendel at Caesar’s Forum Shops
Henri Bendel was the first luxury retailer with an upper Fifth Avenue address, the first to hold a semi annual sale, the first to offer in-store makeovers, and the first to stage a fashion show. He was also responsible for bringing Coco Chanel to the United States.
Henri Bendel is only in the United States and focuses on handbags, luggage, jewelry and other accessories. He originated and patented the brown and cream stripes that are the signature décor for all stores, packaging such as shopping bags, tissue paper, coffee cups, and much more.
The Fall collection was very military inspired including messenger bags, tassels, and military style patch work. Each collection is limited; meaning that only a small amount is produced so when the items are sold out they are gone. Henri Bendel isn’t sold in outlets or discount stores, adding more value and exclusivity to the brand.
Henri Bendel created a “Back Tie Collection” this Fall of luxurious swarovski crystal necklaces and studded clutches. The clutches are my absolute favorite; chic, retro, and regal. (See below)
I recently had the pleasure of attending a “sip and shop” event at Henri Bendel in the Caesar’s Forum Shops. When I first arrived I was greeted by the staff with a glass of champagne, and offered some yummy little cupcakes to snack on while I looked around at the new collections. This was the first time I have ever shopped at Henri Bendel. They have the most gorgeous and luxurious handbags, wallets, luggage, scarves and jewelry. They even carry items for your four legged fur babies. The staff is incredibly friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the brand and merchandise.
I have a slight shopping addiction so of course I had to get a couple items. I found a super cute coffee mug that I drink my coffee and tea out of EVERY day, and also a pair of gorgeous earring. Henri Bendel also sent us home with a super cute gift bag; a beautiful scented candle ( I got Fig which is amazing) and a special edition of Zoya nail polish created specifically for Henri Bendel. Check out some of the picture from the event below.
