our team getaway

So Long, New York: The BARNEYS Team Hits The Road

Already ready for a winter getaway? The feeling’s mutual. Here the Barneys team dishes on how they’re spending the holidays this year. We still haven’t quite figured out what it means that all the men are hitting the beach while the women are all headed someplace cold. Any theories?

AMANDA BROOKS
Women’s Fashion Director

We almost always spend Christmas at my parents’ house in the Adirondacks. It’s perfect for Christmas because there is always snow. I will pack very practical and sporty clothes like Sorel boots and Carven sweaters.

Creative Ambassador at Large

Jonny and I have a condo in Palm Beach. It’s my fave place on Earth. Just hearing the word “condo” gets me smiling. And no need to pack—I keep a bunch of spiffy resort wear in the closet.

DANIELLA VITALE
Chief Merchant, Executive Vice President

We are off to the Mayflower Inn in Washington, Connecticut. It’s very small and cozy but with a great spa and food. I will pack my M.Patmos sweaters, The Row t-shirts, white J Brand jeans and my new Bottega Veneta Chukka boots.

MARK LEE
Chief Executive Officer

I’m going to try the Amanyara in Turks and Caicos this year. I’ll be packing very little: lots of sunscreen and Orlebar Brown swimsuit trunks.

CHARLOTTE BLECHMAN
Senior Vice President, Marketing and Communications

My favorite winter getaway is going to Twin Farms in Vermont for a long weekend: no kids, lots of food, lots of fires, lots of time spent playing gin (the card game, not the drink!), books and lots of red wine! I’ll bring my coziest sweaters from The Row, an extra deck of cards and a backgammon set—the perfect combination!

I love Tulum on the coast in Mexico. I only need a swimsuit, a pair of shorts and a t-shirt.
