Barneys has long been the benchmark for sophisticated—but not stuffy—designer department stores. Even after filing for bankruptcy in 1996 and closing its Chelsea location, Barneys has maintained its ability to attract both Upper East Side old guard and downtown's fashion elite. Barneys industrial style Co-Op stores feature edgy, funkier styles and accessories for men and women and have spawned scores of imitators.
The twice-yearly Barney's Warehouse Sale occurs in late February and late August.
