I have no idea who shops at Henri Bendel's any more. It used to be a store great for introducing interesting designers and unique accessories. No other department store had a millinery department like Bendel's but all that is gone. On the bright side, there is a vast cosmetic floor!!!
If nothing brings you to Bendels you might want to do some exploring being that they are hosting a 20% off friends and family event from Friday, Nov. 7th until Sunday, Nov. 9th. Only full priced merch is included but hats usually didn't go on sale anyway.
Thanks for the tip J.L.
