The most vocal contender was Sam Ben-Avraham, an investor in the streetwear brand Kith and founder of a number of trade shows, who viewed Barneys as a New York landmark that could be reconceived as a new kind of shopping destination.

To Barneys loyalists, this was akin to sacrilege. The bankruptcy of an icon was one thing; trading on the Barneys name while plundering its infrastructure and soul was another. A “Save Barneys” movement, complete with an impassioned Instagram account, started with employee support, and Barneys and its lawyers desperately sought other bidders who might be willing to keep at least some of the chain intact.
That set the stage for a suspenseful hearing on a drizzling Halloween afternoon, as the bankruptcy judge, Cecelia G. Morris, prepared to approve the bid from B. Riley and Authentic Brands.

Authentic Brands also said that it had cut a deal with Saks that would introduce Barneys “shop-in-shops” at Saks stores in the United States and in Canada. Customers will be able to see the unusual pairing of rivals at Saks’ New York flagship store, where a new version of Barneys New York will roll out on the fifth floor.
“We’re not here wearing a black hat at all,” Mr. Chesley said. “This process has been fair, it has been open, it has been reported on and people have been working on this day and night, but the process has to end. It has to end by the rules.”
For decades, Barneys New York epitomized a certain kind of aspirational Manhattan cool.
Just a week before the sale, Mr. Ben-Avraham was still insisting that his offer was on the way, even though the bid deadline had passed; a planned auction was canceled and a statement was released by Authentic Brands and Saks, saying that they had triumphed. It was “not over,” he said.
Authentic Brands Group will take control of the Barneys name — one that has been part of the Manhattan landscape since 1923 — and license it to other companies like Saks Fifth Avenue. The firm B. Riley Financial is preparing to liquidate Barneys’ high-end wares, at its five stores and two Warehouse locations, starting with private sale events for Barneys’ “most loyal” shoppers next week.

Ms. Vitale resigned as C.E.O. of Barneys on Friday.

The bankruptcy saga of the famed New York department store involved last-minute alliances and vain attempts to cobble together competing bids.
