Mum’s The Word: How Barneys Does Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so we turned to our favorite tastemakers—the Barneys New York executive team, of course—to dish on what they have planned, what they’re giving, and what they hope to receive.


“Buy Mom a groovy pair of shades from The Row. She will feel glam and mysterious all day.”


“Jewelry is my complete weakness, so I’m honestly prepared to be anyone’s mother for a piece of jewelry: Nak bangle bracelets (above), a gold and diamond pendant on a leather cord from Suzannah Wainhouse, and I’m in love with just about anything from Sidney Garber


“What mother wouldn’t appreciate a gorgeous Lanvin handbag?”


“I am planning to get my mother a Lanvin Miss Sartorial satchel. I think it’s elegant, classic and very stylish.”


“There’s no better Mother’s Day gift than handmade cards from my kids and breakfast in bed—particularly when the breakfast tray is covered in a smattering of jewelry! Perfect for me: two of the Sidney Garber snake bracelets—one for each wrist!—and anything by Munnu (like the bracelet above) or Irene Neuwirth. What mom doesn’t love jewelry??


“Mother’s Day is a special day for me and my mom. We go to her country house that my dad built for them, and enjoy the garden. I want to give her the travel backgammon set from El Casco. It rolls up into a neat tube that’s easy to bring to the beach.”
