Sarah Jessica Parker & More Stars Show Love for NY in Bloomingdale’s 59th Street Campaign

Bloomingdale’s 59th Street’s latest campaign pays tribute to the retailer’s New York roots.

The campaign, called The Heart of New York, launches Monday and features five famous New Yorkers: actress and shoe designer Sarah Jessica Parker, supermodel Christy Turlington, actor Alan Cumming, New York Yankee Didi Gregorius and editor/activist Elaine Welteroth. The Heart of New York features personal stories from the five stars, who explain their favorite memories of both Bloomingdale’s 59th and New York.

“My most memorable purchase from Bloomingdale’s was a Calvin Klein camel coat. It was probably the first designer item that I bought. At that point, I was already working for Calvin Klein, so it was ironic. But I was taking a trip as a model to Russia and I needed a proper coat,” Turlington recalls.

Through personal stories, Bloomingdale’s hopes to convey the energy of New York, as well as the emotional connection shoppers have to the department store.

“I think Bloomingdale’s is so beloved because it’s just one of those things that you associate with New York. It’s always sort of sure, and you know exactly what you’re getting, and yet it still surprises you,” Cumming explains.
