Even though they moved into their Pacific Place digs just a few years ago (from their first location at City Centre), the Seattle Barneys has just undergone a refresh. A Barney's spokesperson tells me that they’ve expanded the leather goods section by 100 percent and combined men’s and women’s ready-to-wear on the second floor so members of both genders can shop together. The store, from fixtures to fitting rooms, has been revamped into a brighter, more cohesive shopping experience.
Simon Doonan, Barneys creative ambassador-at-large and fashion director, Tomoko Ogura, will be in town on July 10 from 5 to 8 p.m. for a big time party benefitting the Parkinson’s Project. Hoorsenbuhs (a jewelry line I am OBSESSED with) brand ambassador and designer Kether Parker will also be in-store to show off his amazing and best-selling line of rings and bracelets and there will be ample opportunities to win jewelry, shoes, trips and men’s suiting.
