My Favorite Things

With her elegant mien, bold style, and recognizable platinum bob, Linda Fargo has reigned as a paragon of the New York fashion world for decades. Her established tenure as S.V.P. and director of women’s fashion at Bergdorf Goodman showcases her inimitable knack for eyeing faraway trends and, in an impressive number of cases, setting them. Not surprisingly, the Midwestern native—who, as the spirit and muse of the Bergdorf brand, now has her own shop within, “which is like my fantasy closet of all my current season favorites”—also has peerless shopping insights. Herewith, Fargo shines a light on the top 12 pieces that have won her attention this summer.



Ampara Floral-Print Espadrilles

“​​What to do when you have an obsessive collection of iconic Hermès and Pucci scarves, and you’ve run out of ways to tie them? Make them into one-of-a-kind, handmade espadrilles and let your feet have all the stylish fun. Now that’s a re-purpose with a purpose I like!”

La DoubleJ


Hazzard Tie-Shoulder Swimsuit

“Anyone who has the pleasure of meeting the ultra charming J.J. Martin falls under her colorful and playful spell. I’ve seen her grow this brand from a few floral frocks shown in her friend’s Milan flower shop to an entire “World of J.J.”—from beach to tablescapes to innerlife dressing, too. The places this fiesta one-piece and I could go together? Borderless anywhere!”

1st Dibs


Midcentury Rattan Wicker Bar Cart

“Don’t know why, but I’m loco for rattan! My dream house is a tiki hut or a stilted-bamboo apartment in Bali’s Bamboo Village. Short of that, I’ll roll out this whimsical bar cart and knock you out poolside with my Planters Double Punch!”



Pleated-Drape Crepe Midi Dress

“I mean! Have you ever seen a dress that can instantly transform you into the Goddess of Sunshine like this radiant, packable, plisse beauty from Balenciaga. Thanks, Demna Gvasalia!”

Joanna Czech Skincare


The Kit

“And thank you, Joanna! We all want a piece of you! Our skin is thirsty for your years of expertise, and at last we have you in chic handy little bottles. The wait is over—#quenched.”



Evi Stripe Collared Sweater

“If you’re not hip to Khaite’s sweaters with the hand-hider sleeves, the sumptuous and gorgeous yarns, sailor-chic stripes, and casually sexy necklines, then get with it!”

Dries Van Noten


Firework-Print Belted Coat

Oooh, aaaah! Nothing says summer or celebration—or whatever, whenever—like this fantastical sparkler from our favorite mix-master, Dries. Will someone kiss me under the falling stars in this?”

Spinelli Kilcollin


Hyancinth MX-4 Link Ring

“Classics aren’t born everyday, but behold! I can’t think of someone who wouldn’t rock and love one the many variations on this versatile Eighth Wonder of the World. Think: one for me and one for you.”

Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza


Small Elephant Anagram Basket Tote

“O.K., O.K.! Nothing says summer like a raffia tote bag, but add jazzy T-shirt stripes and a why-not elephant, and your day just has to be more fun. Leave it to Loewe—and all their artisanal collabs—to dream this one up.”




“If a car were fashion, this would be my summer pick. It’s cute. I only need it for the season. It starts conversations. I’ll change into something else in the Fall!”




“While these jaunty lipsticks may transform your lips into hypnotizing colors, the enameled, striped cases with snappy magnetic closures are art-object worthy. Sights for sore eyes!”



Face-Stripes Tray

“My lean is always a classic or legacy something-or-other with a fresh spin. This summery tray checks my personal boxes. Great gift or keepable.”
