Henri Bendel is celebrating 100 years of its signature brown & white stripe. The store, owned by Limited Brands, has commissioned a selection of designers to create one-of-a-kind brown-and-white pieces to mark the milestone. Designs from Anna Sui, Alice + Olivia, Peter Som, Matthew Williamson, Josh Goot, Poltock and Walsh, Ghita, Pollini by Rifat Ozbeck, Elise Overland, Nili Lotan and Hamish Morrow, will be auctioned at the stripe’s birthday party, The Brown & White Ball, at the Highline Ballroom in New York on September 11.

Other designers such as Diane von Furstenberg, Milly & J Brand, have created limited edition pieces that will be sold exclusively at Bendel beginning next week and running through the end of October. Even MAC Cosmetics is getting into the mix and has created a Lipglass called "Bendel Girl" and lipstick named "Love, Henri" packaged in signature brown-and-white striped boxes.
