Linda Fargo, the director of women’s fashion at Bergdorf Goodman, is a breath of fresh air in the world of retail. Regarded as the ‘eyes of Bergdorf Goodman’, her pitch-perfect taste in fashion is the reason that Bergdorf’s is continually regarded as the most luxurious department store in New York, and possibly the world.
Linda mixes high-end fashion with upcoming designers to create a playful signature look - her trademarks of bold prints, red lipstick and a sassy grey bob make her instantly recognisable. And who else would be irreverent enough to host a ‘Grey Gardens’ themed birthday party to celebrate turning grey?
So you can imagine our delight when Linda spotted our Monica swimsuit and requested an exclusive version in black for her new capsule store at Bergdorf Goodman: Linda’s.
Linda’s shop, which is a collection of all the things she loves, is located on the 4th floor of Bergdorf’s. Since opening on the first of May, it has become renowned as a treasure trove of the world’s most exciting fashion design. Linda says that each item has been chosen because it is ‘irresistible’, and in the case of the Monica swimsuit we quite agree.
This statement piece from the SS17 collection is striking but surprisingly versatile, with removable straps and a flattering waistband. It’s no wonder Linda loves it.
Linda’s exclusive black version of the Monica is available from her 4th floor shop at Bergdorf’s, while the rest of the Emma Pake collection is available on the 6th floor, in the swimwear showroom.
