Henri Bendel opened their Holiday Street of Shops this week, launching an additional 5,000 square feet of shopping space, located on the third floor. The retailer's Street of Shops concept dates back to the '60s, when the idea of multiple short-term boutiques side by side within a larger store was novel (now we just call that a pop-up shop).
Present day present hunters will find handbags by Kelsi Dagger, miniaudieres from Pour La Victoire, Kenneth Jay Lane jewelry, and at-home gel system Red Carpet Manicure among the offerings. The new floor also features a Macchiato Espresso Bar, should you need a little winding-up pre- or post-Fifth Avenue shopping marathon.
