It would be virtually impossible to rattle off the names of every contributor to this project, but here's a sampling of some of the bigger ones: Designers include Giorgio Armani, Michael Kors, Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Isaac Mizrahi, and Dolce & Gabbana. Clients include Joan Rivers, Candice Bergin, and Susan Lucci. But these are only a fraction of the subjects interviewed. The list of established, as well as up-and-coming, designers included is truly astounding. Each is committed to the notion that Bergdorf's is the absolute pinnacle of the fashion world. If your line is there, you've really made it.
Aside from these testimonials, the documentary offers a nice amount of behind-the-scenes footage. We get a historical time line as the Bergdorf's legend evolved, get to know the head buyer and taste maker of the store, meet one of the shop's most notorious personal shoppers, and spend a few months with the team readying the dazzling Christmas window display. From an artistic standpoint, watching the windows move from concept to execution is one of the film's highlights. It is really a spectacular sight.
From a technical standpoint, the movie uses an occasional narration from actor William Fichtner. Truthfully, I found this device a little awkward and unnecessary. As Fichtner's voice only chimes in sporadically, I always found it a bit jarring. However, it's a small point. The film is edited together with efficiency and moves at a brisk pace. The soundtrack adds dimension (with a shout-out to Streisand), and the feature uses a generous and diverse array of movie and TV clips that have featured the legendary establishment. Having no particular pre-existing interest in Bergdorf Goodman, I still found this to be an amusing and lighthearted entertainment. If you aren't a fashionista, you can still enjoy the movie. But if you are, you won't want to miss it! KGHarris, 8/13.
The people in this documentary were fascinating and the film does a good job moving from subject to subject in a quick pace. I thought this film would bore me, but it was quite the opposite due to the skill of the filmakers. Great documentary for anyone who is into fashion or people who love New York history.
Anyhoo, if you enjoy following high fashion as I do, this is the documentary for you. Isaac Mizrahi is particularly bitchy, and it's really funny. I enjoyed the whole darn thing, and it was hilarious, as are the incredibly stupid reactions some people have had to it in the comments. Ahhhh, Bergdorf's. Someday we will be together again.
