Launching her eponymous shop-in-shop this month, Bergdorf Goodman SVP Fashion and Store Presentation Director Linda Fargo admits: “Every time I advise myself to save for those rainy days of the future, new deliveries hit the racks and I’m hopeless all over again.” Linda’s at Bergdorf Goodman’s rotating selection of eclectic ready-to-wear, unique vintage pieces, exclusive collaborations, accessories, international travel finds, beauty products, furniture, decorative home items, edibles and art offers a glimpse into Fargo’s fantastical world, featuring items often pulled from her very own closet.
“My closet is a mix of classics and essentials, like perfect-fitting black pants, interesting poplin shirting, every variation of nautical stripes, dark denim and LBDs, as well as ‘entrance-maker’ feather, fur and fringe dresses, head-to-toe floral suits, and conversation-starting accessories like lace rabbit ears, lip necklaces and birdcage earrings,” Fargo says.
Fargo leads the fashion flock in embracing the joy of style. “Surrealism, humor and drama play as much into my style as does the fallback classic. … I also have inadvertent signatures and recurring obsessions with leopard, red lipstick, strong vintage jewelry and a smile.”
