Window Displays are a great art form if you ask me, a former window dresser myself. And, especially wonderful at Christmas time. My all-time favorite windows are that of Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. They are in great company with Barneys, Hermès, Tiffany and Louis Vuitton nearby, all who always have show stopping windows as well. Yet every year I find myself standing on Fifth Avenue between 57th and 58th the longest, soaking up the wit, infinitesimal details, phenomenal fashions and sophisticated spectacle at BG. Shown left, is a detail of one of the windows from two Christmas’s ago. There were several themes, all created with a specific color way, medium and material; this one was in black and white paper, which sounds so simple, yet this was the most complex and extravagant expression of paper ever created! I am still awestruck by it and was tickled when the wonderful film “Scatter my Ashes at Bergdorfs” came out and followed the designers and artists behind the brilliance of the windows. After checking out all the windows, and when you need a timeout, enjoy the tea room upstairs designed by Kelly Wearstler or settle into a great film at The Paris Theatre just around the corner. Happy Holidays!
