New York during the holidays sparkles and we try to get into the city at least once or twice to get our jingle bells on… Top on our list is window shopping at the big three – Bergdorf’s, Bendel’s and Barney’s! We heard rumor of what was behind the curtain at Bergdorf’s when we met with our buyers last month so we’re very excited to see the windows in person.
Partnering with some of New York’s iconic institutions, Bergdorf created holiday displays that are beyond bling (like over 1.5 million individual Swarovski crystals covering dinosaur skeletons and giant paper mache flowers). From the New York Botanical Garden to the American Museum of Natural History (both of which we adore and have spent so many hours exploring) these partners provided so much inspiration to David Hoey, the store’s director of visual presentation. “While exploring this theme, we knew the windows had to be dynamic and multilayered to evoke the excitement of New York today, while simultaneously celebrating the city’s past,” says Hoey.
This iconic store’s creativity extends beyond the windows onto the shelves where a slew of limited edition products and experiences have been created with the institutions and current vendors. We’re sure there’s something for everyone, even the most picky mother-in-law!
