Henri Bendel is Coming to Washington (Pictures)

With hordes of teenagers passing through on class field trips and an ever-changing roster of beloved-but-standard chain stores, the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City is a far cry from posh Fifth Avenue. But that's not stopping legendary New York boutique Henri Bendel from opening a new outpost in a former Victoria's Secret space. This will be Bendel's 13th location, and the store is projected to open in September.

The brand—perhaps best known for its signature brown-and-white stripes—has drawn fans since 1895 with its purses, jewelry, travel gear, and home accessories, as well as up-and-coming designer trunk shows.

For a taste of what the store will offer, we're bringing you a slideshow of our favorite stuff from their fall lookbook, which will be available at the store's grand opening.
