NEW YORK HOLIDAY WINDOWS 2016, PART 1!!!!


Bergdorf Goodman


   This year, the folks at Bergdorf Goodman want to take shoppers on an adventure around the world — a dream world, that is. David Hoey, the retailer's senior director of visual presentation, characterizes the department store's displays as "delirious remakes of the classic dioramas seen in natural history museums." He cites the work of Henri Rousseau and 12th-century Chinese watercolor mountainscapes as inspiration for the lush, larger-than-life windows, each of which depicts a unique destination — and is each assigned its own designer wardrobe, from Marc Jacobs' resort and Gucci spring to custom CD Greene and fall Roberto Cavalli and Dolce & Gabbana.




 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Barneys New York
   Barneys New York delivers with its artful windows every holiday season — but this year, the luxury retailer definitely wins on biggest variety. It tapped a series of artists across mediums and categories to interpret a theme of "Love, Peace, and Joy" for the displays of both its Madison and Seventh Avenue flagships; these include Nick Cave (with a one-a-kind sound suit and sculpture display), Rob Pruitt (with a bedroom tableau starring a monster couple), Ebony G. Patterson (with a multimedia video presentation), Studio Job (with a collaged, seven-foot boat facade), and Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park. (Yes, you read that last part right: Stan, Cartman, Kyle, Kenny, and the gang have gone high fashion.)
 
 
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
Henri Bendel
   You've probably seen James Goldcrown's love walls serve as the backdrop for many #OOTDs. Now, the artist is lending his message (and signature work) to a legendary Fifth Avenue flagship. Henri Bendel commissioned Goldcrown to love-ify both its store window and its interior. "We wanted our store to reflect a message of love and togetherness during the holidays," explained Pina Ferlisi, Henri Bendel's creative director. "We thought James’ mural would serve as the perfect reminder to spread the love this season." This is one holiday display you won't have to travel to New York to experience: The brand will reproduce the hallmark love mural at its 28 other locations across the U.S.
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
Lord & Taylor

   Anyone walking down Manhattan's Fifth Avenue between 38th and 39th streets will be instantly struck with all of the holiday feels: Lord & Taylor is bringing our winter wonderland dreams to life, from ice-skating bunnies to snowshoe-clad geese making their way through a forest. This year's display is the product of a team of 75, working over 5,000 hours to create five animated scenes, building on a tradition that's been ongoing for the retailer since 1937.
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Parsons School of Design x Swarovski
   Every year, MFA candidates in the Parsons School of Design's fashion program are granted access to countless Swarovski crystals in order to integrate the Austrian house's signature sparklers into their garments. This year, though, students had the added incentive of the possibility of putting their work on display in midtown Manhattan. Six students nabbed the honor, and their final pieces will hold court on Madison Avenue until January 4, 2017. "It's quite a thrill for our students, and we cannot thank the new owners of 550 Madison Avenue enough for giving them this extraordinary opportunity," Burak Cakmak, dean of Parsons, said.
