Concierge.com's insider take:
Most department stores have cloned themselves endlessly, populating malls all over America. But there is only one Bergdorf Goodman. In fact, it has such significance in fashion circles that most designers would choose Bergdorf's if forced to display their wares in only one place. The original store and the Men's Store across Fifth Avenue house every important fashion name, both classic and cutting-edge, along with exquisite accessories, jewelry, and haute items for the home. Check out the fifth-floor womenswear (known as 5F) for a comprehensive range of affordable, buzz-worthy names such as Jason Wu and Alexander Wang, along with labels like Theyskens' Theory by Belgian wunderkind Olivier Theyskens. The young designer formerly helmed Rochas and Nina Ricci, and his streamlined designs for the popular mass brand Theory tend to send fashion devotees into a swoon. Recharge at the salonlike Kelly Wearstler–designed BG restaurant on the 7th floor.
Open Mondays through Fridays 10 am to 8 pm, Saturdays 10 am to 7 pm, and Sundays noon to 6 pm.
