Can You Hear That? It’s The BARNEYS Team’s Favorite Tunes

After snooping through the Barneys team’s closets and flipping through the books on their nightstands, we felt the natural next step was to peek at their playlists. So what did we find? An eclectic mix of pop and rock, international and hip hop—the Barneys team has got some seriously cool music cred. Check out the bands they’re rocking out to below.


Creative Ambassador at Large

“I am utterly mesmerized by anything Rihanna. There’s something about that Island girl….”


Chief Merchant, Executive Vice President

“I have a motley list. My top 25 right now is a mix of genres including Elton John’s Greatest Hits, Group Love, Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto, Nicki Minaj, anything with Pitbull and Cecilia Bartoli Italian Arias.”


Chief Executive Officer

“I heard a version of Nessun Dorma by Jeff Beck at the men shows, and I can’t stop playing that now on my iPod.”


Creative Director

“I recently saw the Antony and the Johnsons concert at Radio City, and I can’t wait to listen to more.”


Senior Vice President, Marketing and Communications

“I am obsessed with Adele—she has the most amazingly soothing, yet powerful voice. I can listen to the album for hours and not get tired of hearing the same songs. And of course, I can’t forget my regular lineup of Jay Z, Mary J., Dido, Rihanna and, of course, Lady Gaga!”


General Merchandise Manager, Executive Vice President

“My heart beats for Brazilian songs from singers like Bebel Gilberto, Marcos Valle and Wanda de Sah. A spring trip to Buenos Aires opened my ears to the Argentine singer-pianist Gabriela Anders. Her sounds remind me of this time of year—a time to start thinking about new Hartford linen shirts in fun colors.”
