It has only been three years since Gabriela Hearst launched her eponymous label, yet she has developed a strong and modern point of view that has made her brand a name to know in the fashion industry. For pre-fall, the Uruguay-born designer is offering an exclusive capsule collection of key silhouettes in novel fabrications and colors. Ahead of the launch, we caught up with Hearst to find out all the details. Read our interview and shop the collection below, online and on BG’s third floor starting this week.
Bergdorf Goodman: What was your inspiration for the pre-fall capsule collection?
Gabriela Hearst: I wanted every piece to be precise, and have desirability, beauty, creativity, and a purpose.
BG: Why did you think Bergdorfs was a good partner for this capsule?
GH: Bergdorfs is synonymous with luxury, craftsmanship, and timelessness. They are the perfect partner for our collection.
BG: What do you consider essentials for a pre-fall wardrobe?
GH: A beautiful suit and a light cashmere coat.
BG: What are some of your favorite pieces in the pre-fall capsule? How would you wear them in your daily life?
GH: Every piece in the capsule is a favorite and a piece that I would wear. I particularly love the suits. I have a weakness for them. I like the easiness of getting ready and the formality of the look.
BG: How would you define the Gabriela Hearst woman?
GH: The Gabriela Hearst woman is a true luxury customer that is expecting superior quality. She is a woman of action and has a dynamic life. She has her own style and is not driven by trends.
BG: What are your wardrobe MVPs?
GH: My suits, cashmere coats, and the dresses I have inherited from my mother-in-law.
