What's In a Name?
When I heard Barneys New York had made plans to arrive in Chevy Chase this fall, I practically swooned with pleasure. But it was a quick swoon, made much less pleasurable by the fact that instead of a clone of the flagship Madison Avenue store (with its cosmetics floor showcasing every new niche brand of makeup and fragrance, the to-die-for housewares department, the first floor that entices with fashion jewelry by the likes of Lanvin and cushy handbags by Henri Beguelin -- should I go on?) here in D.C., it pained me to learn, we were going to get the co-op store, which as I understand is going to be, yes, quite a big space, but stocked with lots of T-shirts, jeans, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Theory clothing, which we already have in abundance. Pardon my grump, but I was hoping for the moon and now I'm just not expecting very much that's new.
