There’s a chill in the air and you’ve pulled your sweaters and jackets out of the back of the closet, but now what? When it comes to taking the plunge into fall fashion, who better to point the way than the experts themselves—those stylish men and women who spend their days surrounded by all the best that Barneys has to offer?

Introducing From The Floor: a new series that highlights the hardworking and effortlessly chic members of our store teams. Up first, we turn to Madison Avenue department managers Camille Mann and Joaquin Molina. We convinced this dynamic duo to snap a few selfies showing off their own fall style and the trends they’re most excited about this season. From the high-waisted trouser to the proper way to wear a man-cape, they provide the inside track on sporting all of fall’s must-have looks.

Scroll on for a closer look at their favorite pieces culled from the racks, then head to Barneys armed with their insider tips. And if you’re in the Madison Avenue store say hello to Camille and Joaquin. Now that they’re free of their selfie duties, they’d love to assist you in your wardrobe endeavors.

PROENZA SCHOULER Tweed Off-The-Shoulder Top / EMANUEL UNGARO D-Ring-Strap Trousers / CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN So Kate Pumps / DELVAUX Tempete GM / IRENE NEUWIRTH Gemstone Ring / ROLEX Vintage Oyster Perpetual Date Watch

“My love for statement pieces comes from the fact that they can be worn beautifully with the balance of something simple like a t-shirt or jeans. Yet, sometimes it’s worth putting them all together! This look just so happens to fall in line with one of my favorite trends this season: high-waist pants.”

DOLCE & GABBANA Brocade Minidress / RAG & BONE Skinny Jeans / SAINT LAURENT Janis Platform Pumps / VALEXTRA Isis Small Bag / AURELIE BIDERMANN Lace Cuff / SPINELLI KILCOLLIN “Nova Gris Pave” Ring

“This look highlights my take on femininity-meets-fashion, with a dash of pink and lace thrown into the mix. As the weather begins to cool, I am wearing this gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana dress with my favorite XO skinny jeans, because a lady has to have options!”

ESTEBAN CORTAZAR Tech-Faille Top / J BRAND Leather Vivia Pants / GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI Suede Strappy Sandals

“The 70’s have made a comeback, and how convenient is my curly fro! Wide legs, in leather—so wide you can’t even make out the fabulous XO Giuseppe sandals. This look deserves a night out on the town.”

 

ESTEBAN CORTAZAR Asymmetric Sweater / BARNEYS NEW YORK Floral-Print Slim-Fit Shirt / EACH X OTHER Plaid Pants / ALTUZARRA Ghianda Knot Large Hobo / AQUAZURRA Very Eugenie Platform Sandals

“My two favorite collections this fall are Esteban Cortazar and Altuzarra’s handbags. Esteban’s collection is extremely versatile, so I decided to layer it with one of this season’s playful trends—plaid and print. Joseph Altuzarra’s beautifully designed Ghianda Knot Hobo is effortlessly chic and comfortable.”

JUNYA WATANABE MAN COMME DES GARCONS Button-Bib Poplin Shirt / WOOSTER + LARDINI Cuffed Ankle Trousers / GOLDEN GOOSE Distressed Superstar Sneakers

“For this look, I took very dressy pieces and made them more casual and comfortable. An easy way to change a dressy look is by just cuffing the sleeves and throwing on some sneakers.”
