I don’t think this is a bad thing, per se. Obviously it will hurt the breadth of BG’s offerings, but it will likely mean the birth of an independent brand that will be able to be acquired for sub-BG prices. RB doesn’t have the cache of the BG name — yet — so the prices probably will be more affordable at the beginning.

I live in Cali. Never been to Bergdorf. In a few words, could you sum what’s unique/special about the store’s offerings?

I can do it in one word. STYLEFor Bergdorf it was not about the big names(although they had them all) it was how they mixed them. They put their stamp on what they felt was important for a season. Sorry Saks and Neimans don’t really do that. They offer the designers that they feel are important and place them in a nice space but Bergdorf gives you added value. If you don’t want to dress head to toe in one designer Bergdorf gives you great ideas of how in mix them in a real life way.oops that was more than one word.
