The women of New York's Upper East side, where long days are spent popping into Bergdorf's or Barney's, or both, have continued to captivate passers-by who marvel at their pearls and coiffed hair.
Now, a photographer equally as fascinated with the wealthy world along Fifth Avenue, decided to capture the storied residents, as they went about daily errands in their finest jewels and largest sunglasses.
Taken by Leland Bobbé, famous for his gritty Seventies New York City street shots, the photo series, The Women Of Fifth Avenue, sets a dramatic and lavish scene between 50th and 60th Streets.
The award-winning photographer, who captured audiences with his most recent Half-Drag photo series featured in Italian Vogue, told the Huffington Post: 'Fifth Avenue, between 50th street and 60th street; home of Trump Tower, Gucci, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Prada, Louis Vuitton and more; a playground for the rich, ladies who shop and lunch.
'[The women]. . . seem to exist in their own bubble of leisure while the hustle and bustle of working New Yorkers and tourists swirl by.
'With these images my intention is to capture these woman seemingly in their own wealthy world, insulated from the rest of us,' he explained.
The photo series coincides with a new documentary that delves into the history of Bergdorf Goodman, Fifth Avenue's fashion palace, revealing the secret shopping habits of some of its most devoted, and discerning customers.
From the late Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Kennedy to Yoko Ono and John Lennon, Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's, released May 3, tells hypnotic tales of New York's high society.
The film's interviews with storied fashion personalities, including Karl Lagerfeld, Manolo Blahnik, Giorgio Armani, and Christian Louboutin, paint a picture of a department store laced in 'decades and decades' of American history.
Attracting visitors from around the world, the 'hallucinogenic windows,' as described by David Hoey, the store's senior director of visual presentation, are seen by nearly two million eyes every week.
Designer Isaac Mizrahi remarks in the film: 'If your clothes are not at [Bergdorf’s] then they have no future... Sorry.'
