NEW YORK -- As Macy's enters the quagmire of bankruptcy, its uptown rival, Bloomingdale's, is emerging from it next week with a new top merchant and a new attitude.Michael Gould, who joined Bloomingdale's in May and took over as chairman and chief executive in November, is firmly shifting the focus of the company from the flamboyant path followed by his longtime predecessor, Marvin S. Traub.Leading Bloomingdale's out of two stagnant years in bankruptcy and back to its former glory will be a tall order for Mr. Gould.

When Marvin Traub began working for New York's Bloomingdale's department store in 1950, it was, as he tells it, "a place where Park Avenue maids shopped for their uniforms." When he left in 1991, Bloomie's was the chic store where the maids' employers shopped.This is the story of one of the nation's great merchants and his involvement in transforming a dinosaur.But more than that, it's the story of changing postwar preferences, the growth of Bloomie's influence in fashion and the rise of newly affluent consumers.

Shoppers with upscale tastes but shallow pockets are finding more shopping choices with a recent resurgence in outlet and off-price stores being rolled out by major retailers. Discount shopping isn't new. Bargain shoppers have trekked out to outlet malls for decades seeking discounts. Stores like TJ Maxx and Marshalls, who buy leftover goods from department stores and other places and sell them at a markdown, have prospered during the weak economy. But retailers are discovering new opportunities in discount and outlet shopping as frugal consumers are being more careful about what they spend and retailers are looking for ways to grow.

The kilt has gone punk. Well, maybe post-punk. That's the term used by Kalman Ruttenstein, Bloomingdale's fashion director, to describe the micromini kilts fastened with slews of safety pins, shown recently in the store's windows in New York.He might also be talking about the teeny-weeny kilts in Anna Sui's spring show, worn with bare midriffs, low-slung silver belts and silver Lurex knee-highs. The kilt has come a long way from the Scottish highlands.The best places to find the ultrashort ones right now are Bloomingdale's and Bergdorf Goodman.

NEW YORK - Divine would be so proud. There, inside the fashion mecca that is Bloomingdale's; there, inside an exclusive designer boutique, a black T-shirt screams the name of the late, great transvestite legend in lipstick-pink letters. And it's selling like mad. Irony piles on irony when one considers the shop devoted to all things Hairspray. Bad taste suddenly has become good taste, and Divine, a fashion plate. Who knew? Kal Ruttenstein, for one. The senior vice president of fashion merchandising says the retail giant has had great success with tie-ins to Broadway plays and movies, such as Rent.
