If there was some type of ranking system among women with the most Henri Bendel sweaters, my mom would be stationed high up there. When I was growing up in New York, she had every color imaginable and in every silhouette, from crewneck to V-neck to turtleneck, and she would insist I stockpile them too. And, yes, we also amassed a collection of the store's iconic brown and white striped cosmetic bags. So when Henri Bendel asked me to contribute to its Summer Style Guide, I, still a loyal fan, happily agreed. You can check it out here where I am sporting some of my favorite bags and jewelry from their current collection.
