DONT BUY FROM BARNEYS – barneys services are soooo bad. if someone doesnt wanna buy your stuff doesnt mean that someone cant afford it. the online website is a joke. out of stock items are always posted in the sale section. if you do decide to get one that is in stock, too bad it is out of stock too. and they cancel your order automatically for "security reasons" this is ridiculous. i tried ordering TWICE. it still says cancelled for security reasons. i recommend shopbop and revolveclothing. BARNEYS ARE OVERPRICED ANYWAY. EVEN THE SALES. the same helmut lang dress i wanted to get was on sale at shopbop but didnt have my size. shopbop sells it for $135 and barneys.... $209. I was willing to pay more to get my size but yeah i guess they are merely trying to give consumers the impression that they have alot of stock and sizes and their prices are totally a deal but its all a joke. dont ruin your day by being their customer. I have already ruined mine.
wow what horrible people!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – i went to go buy my boyfriend a gift for his birthday , he wanted the jackspade bookbag for school, so i found it their, no one offered to help me, these guys there looked like air head concided modles, when it came time to pay i had to wait for the guy at the register to finish his conversation with the other employee, then they tell me they dont have gift boxes to go down stairs and ask the men their, so i go and ask and they snapped at me, they were like go back where you bought them and ask for a box, i explained that where i bought it they directed me downstairs and he said well your not egtting a box from me! i cant belive the attitude , i was so furious the man had me in tears, by far the worst shopping experience iv ever had in my life and everyone their shoyuld be fired...i bet if i walked in with a black card they'd kiss up!
Teri Bienvenue Jewery IS...or was... at Barneys ! – I dont usually write reviews. But I agree with the poster, about the sales asscoiates who dont know their merchandise, or cant be bothered. ( Trust, me I think Barneys is the absolute best fashion store in the universe...the NYC one, not all the other barneys are as fab!!!)
I have some Teri Bienvenue earrings purchased at the Barneys in Seattle, WA a while back. Mind you they had only a few of her pieces but they were there. She isnt a big name designer or anything, or maybe a one time thing, so her name may not be to forthcoming. However at the NYC Barneys I had asked to be directed to the Gabrielle Sanchez Jewelry, the sales associate initially said.."um...I dont think we have it..." Maybe she should have read the name inside one of the Jewelry Cases. she was standing in front of. I mean, come on !!! Gabrielle Sanchez has a seprate part of a jewelry case..with her name in metallic letters within the case, and the sales gal was telling me "NO I dont think we have it "? That is pure nonsense.
Other than the forementioned uniformed sales associate I experienced, Barneys is still the greaaaaaatest shopping experiences of life. Great clothes, great jewelry, and for the most part great great service. I love their cosmetics department the best, small ,but the associates/make up artists are all well informed on their product lines, and when they apply make up on your face, they make you look fabulous, and not like a call girl or something !!! The gorgeous Bobbi Brown ladies are my faves !
That's my rant, over.
I know I bought it there ! Barneys wouldnt believe me ! – I love Barney's !!! It is truly the greatest clothing/fashion accessories store in the universe. Great quality, the buyers have great taste.GREAT SHOES ! I go there at least once a month when on business in NYC ! Last November I purchased a Teri Bienvenue Necklace, and earrings, suggested by a sales associate to match a dress I also purchased for a cocktail party. Very recently I inquired about the jewlery designer, and was rudely told "her line isnt here it's only at bergdorfs", which is untrue. I know I purchased the jewelry at Barneys, I am not an idiot, i know where I buy things, and I dont go to bergdorfs unless with my mother....LOL.... I dont expect sales stafff to know every item in the place, or the name of every designer represented at Barneys, but I always thought that the staff was their to assist patrons, not repramand them. Dont worry, I made her feel like more of a fool, than she tried to do to me. ( Had the sales slip, with the item number...I wanted another to give as a birthday gift to a friend who really loved the set i got). Then the sales girl who helped me picked the jewelry out in november emerged and she did remember the purchase, sort of. This is my only "bad" experience at Barneys New York . But it is still my favorite store of all time...just ignore moody sales staff, and find an associate who isnt having a bad day.
No place better! – Love, Love, Love it! The staff is courteous and helpful. The atmosphere is inviting! It makes me want to shop!
LOVE THERE ETIQUETTE, GREAT DECOR & ENVIROMENT. – GREAT DEALS, PRICES, EMPLOYEE W/ ITEMS KNOWLEDGE, AND MUST IMPORTANTLY, AWESOME CLOTHING LINE.
good selection good sales – I went in here for a suit and Ended up with three. Its a geat selection but a little pricey . Being a gay male I love clothes. I recommend it to you if you do not have time to look
barneys is the best – i love love love this place!!!! i never regreted any purchases from this amazing store. yes very expensive, but worth every penny. the hand bag selection is my favorite and contemporary sports staff are always upbeat and friendly.
Go see Nefertiya at the Jeans bar! – As a former New Yorker I am disappointed by the tiny Barney's here in Seattle so it gave me great pleasure to bring my friends to the "Real" Barney's on a recent trip to NYC. Even though I was snubbed for asking to see a Prada purse and then not purchasing it (god forbid) and my friend had a similar experience with another saleswoman, Nefertiya made it all better by going out of her way to find the perfect jeans for both of us! She even offered to send things to us here in Seattle after the other girl told us they "don't do that" (yeah right). Thanks for your help!
New York's finest luxury department store. – The Scene
Barneys is the younger person's Bergdorf Goodman, and the vibe is just as classy--with a modern flavor. The sprawling store is mostly white, impeccably clean and so enchanting it might make you max out every credit card you have if you're not careful. The staff are well-dressed and attractive enough that they often forget that they are there to help patrons. Dress very well and act confident to get better service.
Fashion fanatics come to Barneys for just about anything. Women's clothing runs the gamut from Prada and Helmut Lang to younger, more affordable labels, like Earl Jeans and Three Dots. The beauty brands are extensive, the shoe selection is terrific and the house label fantastic. There's also a maternity section and a selection of bridal wear. Unless you're on a budget, there's no reason not to shop here.
