Fall Preview: Bernardo

Bernardo is being reborn for fall ’12. New owners Peter Cooper and Todd Miller took over the 66-year-old company last September with the goal of revamping the brand’s looks while paying homage to its traditional heritage. To that end, Bernardo’s fall mix includes bold detailing such as metallics, vibrant colors, glitter and exotic textures, all of which enhance classic constructions. The line will be available at major department stores and e-tailers that already carry the brand, such as Bloomingdale’s and Lane Crawford, as well as boutiques across the country.
