Shopping The New Henri Bendel Store At Old Orchard Mall Chicago

Henri Bendel Store at Old Orchard Mall has the same storefront design as in New York.
Henri Bendel New York recently opened an outpost at Old Orchard Mall, just north of Chicago. The city welcomed Henri Bendel back with open arms at Watertower Place last fall, since closing its doors 14 years ago on Michigan Avenue. Now what could be better than having yet another Bendel’s to shop? (And parking is free at the wide open Old Orchard Mall!) The two new stores are loaded with accessories, all of the Henri Bendel label. It is easy to find something for yourself from blingy jewelry to chic handbags and scarves. This store opened just in time for gift giving season with Mother’s Day, graduation parties, (my birthday!) and bridal showers right around the corner. Henri Bendel opened as a milliner in 1985 offering his chic clientele exquisitely-detailed hats and gowns of his own creation and from European designers. He was credited for introducing Coco Chanel and Lavin to the U.S.. A gift from Henri Bendel’s is always a treat! You can find one at every price point, from three fragrance samplers at $38 to travel accessories around $50, cuffs from $85-$155 and handbags up to $500. It is very much a “one for you, one for me” place to shop!
Henri Bendel's Buckle Up line and country club chic accessories in cobalt blue are new for spring 2012. Look at the cute carry along ballet flats, each pair in their own stripe bag, of course.

I could spend hours selecting leather wrapped, Swarovski encrusted and enamel cuffs. No wonder these are Henri Bendel's number one best sellers!
