Hey, Let’s Get Away: The Barneys Team on Winter Escapes

If there’s an upside to winter’s slushy weather and limited daylight, it’s the chance of escape. We asked the Barneys New York team where they’re headed to recharge and what they’d take along for the ride.



I’m headed to Mexico, and will be taking a couple of pairs of my new Petronius swim trunks and not much else.

We are going to a very laid-back place in Antigua where we plan to do a lot of water-related activities. We’re giving the kids snorkeling lessons, but I don’t like to get my hair wet so may just watch from the chair! I’m packing way too much to mention all, but for starters: a Norma Kamali Johnny D. bikini in navy, a pair of Irene Neuwirth/Esquivel jeweled sandals, a solid color Zimmerman playsuit to throw over bathing suits, a white Dolce & Gabbana Daisy dress for New Year’s, plenty of cut-offs from Current/Elliott, and the great new striped tees we just received from T by Alexander Wang.

I am all about recharging my batteries in Florida. I love the sensory deprivation. Fortunately I have an apartment in Palm Beach so I don’t need to pack anything. My freshly ironed caftans are waiting for me.

This winter I am planning to go to Mexico City and afterwards, a very small hotel on the coast where I hope to eat great food, take a lot of naps and read as many books as I can. Most of the time I will be in a pair of swim trunks and a t-shirt.

I’m going home to Tokyo. I take pleasure in dressing down when there: sweatshirt, jeans and sneaks—like these Nike wedges—to keep my feet happy.

I always love to escape to Miami for a few days. No need to pack as I will make my pilgrimage to the COOP store in South Beach to pick up some essentials like the Barneys New York COOP knits.

We’ll be headed to Utah and Aspen this winter for skiing, skiing, and more skiing! We’re a big ski family, so I’m looking forward to trying to catch up to my four- and six-year-olds shredding down the mountain. I’ll be sure to bring along my cashmere sweaters from The Row, along with my v-neck sweaters and long-sleeve tees from ATM, which are perfect for layering. My other must-haves are my Walter Steiger shearling lace-up boots and my Crème de la Mer, which both help pull together my après ski look.
