One of the most exciting things about walking into Bergdorf Goodman is discovering designers like Hayward, a recent addition to the New Main Floor. Built on generations of Hollywood heritage, Hayward is known for their timeless American handbag silhouettes. Designed by Marin Hopper, daughter of Dennis Hopper and Brooke Hayward, granddaughter of Leland Hayward, the collection is inspired by the iconic family’s adventures.
We visited the Parlor floor of the Grosvenor Atterbury mansion on the Upper East Side, to learn more about the family, the brand and to spend some time inside the world of Hayward. With vaulted ceilings, dark wood interior and custom ‘H’ shaped door handles, we were instantly transported. Gleaming tables fill the space, each dotted with the newest bag silhouettes. The walls are overflowing with art and photos of the family and friends who defined the Golden Age of Hollywood. Some of the artwork includes a “shoe” drawing by Andy Warhol; a portrait of Brooke Hayward by Dennis Hopper, and a painting by Jack Nicholson that Dennis gave to Marin.
