Our latest campaign reminds shoppers of Barneys’ core: a forward-thinking destination for discovery, taste, and wit. Our simple black shopping bag with silver-embossed lettering will always hold a special place in its owner’s heart.
While researching this bag in the wild, we fell down an early aughts celebrity rabbit hole—fitting, as the decade’s top style hits have been creeping back to the forefront. Yes, we’re talking boot-cut jeans, logo-mania, “going out” tops, platform heels, and more. So, naturally, we updated these caught-by-the-paps looks from some of our favorite shopping celebrities of the 2000s with modern pieces you can buy right now. May nostalgia be your guide.
When you try to go incognito but your outfit is too on-point to be on the low. Goldie Hawn exudes a casual cool that’s certainly back in style: dad sneakers with a pop of color, relaxed mom jeans (who’s a cooler mom than her?) in a light wash, and a plush coat. We’ve updated this look with a little help from Margiela.
Flared and boot-cut jeans are back in a major way, and, thankfully, the second time around they sit a little higher on the waist. We are crushing on Foxy Brown’s understated glam and will immediately be adding a ladylike bag and silver hoops to our weekend denim look. Flip phone optional.
Few things scream 2000s pop culture louder than a photo of Paris Hilton shopping. In her ruffle-top sundress and giant sunglasses—a trend perfected by Hilton and the Olsen twins—this was a look that didn’t push far past 2009. It’s now reemerged, and we’re all for this casual dress that makes warm-weather shopping feel like a breeze. Top off the look with a true throwback: Saint Laurent’s iconic Tribute sandals, which debuted in 2004.
Jeff Goldblum makes a strong case for the personal uniform. His slim denim, colored accent tee, and leather bomber combo allows his affable personality (and signature frames) to shine. While the sensibility may scream ’00s, the silhouette and styling are timeless, aging as well as the man himself.
