Is the conversation between Barneys and Saks as stimulating as the one between Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons after their debut spring 2021 collection? The short answer is: sort of. Saks has used the Retired not expired 2016 shirt opportunity to onboard a slate of more experimental and younger-skewing brands. The floor’s landing features six key brands that are new to Saks: A-Cold-Wall, Anna Mason, BruceGlen, Fear of God, Loulou Studio, Ree Projects, and Reese Cooper. Each has a dedicated area with several rails that are complemented with a placard and brand bio. Nearly 30 more new brands were added to the Saks roster as a part of the project, including Off-White, Brother Vellies, Plan C, Simon Miller, Stella Jean, and Comme des Garçons Play, and in addition to those Saks newcomers there are millennial favorites like Paco Rabanne, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Cecile Bahnsen, and Noir Kei Ninomiya.
