  • Fantastic Mr. Fox pops up in Bergdorf Goodman Men’s Holiday Windows

    Retail Remedy: The Men’s Store at Bergdorf Goodman gets quite foxy!You don’t have to dig that deep to get into Wes Anderson’s foxhole– it’s been relocated to the posh strip along New York’s Fifth Avenue. The actual, doll-sized characters from the delightfully witty stop-animated film The Fantastic Mr. Fox are part of the holiday window display at Bergdorf’s Men’s Store and are beyond adorable.We’re big fans of the movie here and my son was one of only two kids in the theater full of Wes Anderson devotees on opening day . By the time, my stop-animation obsessed son saw the movie three more times, it was a definite kid-magnet.

  • Retail Remedy: Venice Window Shopping, Italian Early Fall Preview

    Or, how I spent my summer vacation, Part Due…From the windows of Max MaraVenice is quite the chic shopping mecca with Gucci, Fendi, Prada, Giorgio Armani, Zegna, Hermes, Chanel, and almost any luxury brand that you can think of in the vicinity of the ubiquitous Carnevale masks and Murano millifiore glass chotseka tourist shops. Yes, there are some rather major contemporary glass shops thrown in the mix, but it is heaven for the figurine junkie!We’ve looked at what’s in store for summer in the Venice shop windows, now for a peek at the fall clothes that are starting to trickle in. The humidity continued to soar thus making it rather uncomfortable to want to try on that winter black pleated back Max Mara coat and the curlicue gloves, pictured left. I’m sure that they will turn up in another city when there’s a bit of breeze in the air.Venice is so highly populated with international tourists that you really need to look hard to see a true Venetian strutting the gorgeous wears that abound.Take at fast look at our photo gallery and see what’s in stock now.>> The summer fashion post is here.Venice Early Fall Fashion Windows

  • Retail Remedy: Venice Window Shopping, Italian Summer Style

    “Or, how I spent my summer vacation, Part Uno:Italian Style- It’s all in the details!The family and I (pooch included) were lollygagging about in Venice for a bit. In true Italian style– as I know it– everything is beautiful but doesn’t necessarily work as expected.The loft apartment we rented was amazing: Brand new renovation in an Old Venice building with a fab rooftop deck and view, super clean and modern Italian style with attention to every detail, except completion.Wow, that sounds like our construction projects sans the view!As the first renters after the total renovation we had the pleasure of experiencing the joys of Italian home repair, which was quite lovely but not what we planned for as part of our vacation! Once the air conditioners (yes, I have been to Italy enough to know that working “climatizzatori d’aria” are key to not schvitzing your petunias off in summer) had their installation completed and the tech genius discovered that the WIFI wasn’t working because no one registered it, we were good to go. Only days later we realized that the washer wasn’t working because although it was positioned and hidden in the most stylish fashion, some connection to water was necessary for operation. We passed on the plumber.However, it is a fantastic time to explore the magic of Venice. The 53rd Venice Biennale of Art Exhibition is open in the Giardini and the Arsenale. Expect to spend a good part of a day in each to view some international cutting edge contemporary art installations besides the random installations throughout Venice falling under the Making Worlds theme. The Punta della Dogana Art Museum just opened and it features the not-to-be-missed personal contemporary art collection of Francois Pinault, his PPR group owns Gucci, Yves St. Laurent, Stella McCartney, Puma, Ballenciaga, Alexander McQueen, and more. Of course, you don’t want to miss The Peggy Guggenheim Collection which is located in Peggy Guggenheim’s former home on the Grand Canal.There is so much unique and exceptional art in Venice that shopping almost plays second fiddle. Summer sales are starting, early fall is dribbling in. Here’s a look at the best of what’s in the store windows in Venice, Italy. Take a look at what I saw for summer fashion…The fall fashion post will follow.”
