Retail Report…With Suzanne Timmins Of Lord & Taylor And Hudson’s Bay

by Dena Silver

What’s haute in the retail world? Suzanne Timmins, SVP Fashion Director at Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor, fills us in…

What’s the last thing you bought?
Incredible earrings by A Peace Treaty.

Which section in the store is the most dangerous for you, purchase-wise?
I always stop by the Birdcage; there’s always something new that I simply must have. And don’t get me started on our footwear floor!

What exactly is Birdcage?
It’s a highly-curated shop within Lord & Taylor. The product offering continues to evolve and change from season to season. This spring, our customers will experience new labels, such as jewelry from Lele Sadoughi, bags from Sensi, eyewear from Le Specs, and stationery from Garance Doré, among other fabulous finds.

We’ve also heard some buzz about Brand Assembly…
It was created by Hillary France and Alex Repola to help young designers launch and grow successful brands. We partnered with Brand Assembly last fall to launch a concept shop that features a rotating assortment of emerging and advanced contemporary designers.

How do you stay energized during NYFW?
Stay fueled, stay hydrated, and most importantly, stay calm! To do that, I try to swim every morning. The exercise and solitude allow me to relax and clear my head.
