Henri Bendel's Open-See event is practically legendary; on March 23 they will host their biannual open casting call for emerging designers at their flagship location in New York. Each designer will have the privilege of presenting their collections to Henri Bendel buyers and industry elite, showing everything from handbags to jewelry to skincare (but not, interestingly, apparel or shoes). This has been going on at Bendel's Fifth Avenue location for over four decades, in fact, Anna Sui got her start from an Open-See. With fresh designers coming in for this event twice a year, it's no wonder they sell such amazingly creative merchandise. Let's take a look at some of our favorite and unique Henri Bendel items in stock right now.
