Retail giant, Macy’s has introduced a new private label called Bar III and celebrated with a launch event at the chic New Museum. Unlike most launches where stylists put looks together, Bar III used Bloggers from the following notable blogs – Karla’s Closet, Because I’m Addicted, The Style Blogger, Fashion Toast, Sea of Shoes, Feels Like White Lightning and Street Etiquette to style the lookbook, the event’s looks and the live models using mostly their own shoes and accessories.
Bar III is an exciting contemporary collection of womenswear and menswear that is youthful, on-trend and very wallet-friendly. I had a chance to speak with Mia Kumajai, Product Assistant at Macy’s Merchandising Group about Bar III and the event in general. See below for interview
While perusing through what Bar III has to offer for the summer, naturally I did a few mental shopping for myself. I not only imagined these pieces in my closet but on my body at different social events. My favorite look was this adorable lace short set. I know most people think there’s a limit to the amount of lace so it doesn’t start looking like you robbed your grandmother’s doily collection but Bar III does it very right with this look.
Other favorites include the following
Macy’s will debut the Bar III collection pop-up shop starting February 10th at 156 Fifth Ave at 20th St. Of course I concentrate mainly on the womenswear in the above photos but as mentioned, this is a womens and mens line. You guys will be very to know that the inexpensive Bar III suits can be tailored to your body for free if you purchase it at the pop-up shop. One thing I particularly love about Bar III is the detailing on their pieces – the lace shoulder on my favorite look above to the quilted shoulder on the mens jacket below.
For those of you worried that you might not make the pop-up shop, don’t fret. Once the pop-up shop closes on March 6th, Bar III will be available at Macy’s flagship shops across the country. Happy Shopping
