A hint of military luxe informs Henri Bendel’s fall accessories.
“What we love at Henri Bendel for fall is a hint of military luxe,” says creative director Pina Ferlisi. “You will feel a modern military influence from the gold hardware on our olive green and officer-blue handbags to our medals, pendants, and dog-tag–inspired jewelry.” Milliner Henri Willis Bendel was the first retailer in the US to sell Coco Chanel’s designs. Today, the brand’s signature brown and white–striped shopping bags, hatboxes, and cosmetic bags are hallmarks of refinement. Walt Whitman Shops, 160 Walt Whitman Road, Huntington, 421-2053

It doesn’t get much more iconic than this 2003 Hampton Classic snap of DKNY designer Donna Karan, pictured with son-in-law Gianpaolo DeFelice and daughter Gabby Karan DeFelice, with Gianpaolo holding baby Stephania.
The fashionable foursome is dressed in Hamptons summer classics that would still work well a decade later. Think light, airy fabrics and silhouettes in seasonal colors like white, yellow, and blue. Donna's statement belt and necklace render her look boho-chic, while Gabby simplifies on jewelry but goes big on bowed-up high-heels.
