BERGDORF GOODMAN


Hands down...every year, Bergdorf Goodman is almost always my favorite windows. David Hoey and his visual team on the windows always do such a tediously, stunning, talented job every year. Such details in the window, I wonder if the general public ever even notices some of the small things in the windows. While these are great, they weren't my favorite of theirs, in some years... which is shocking. I found the fashion very hard to see with the way the mannequins  were staged. But definitely worth a look if in the area.  Seven windows filled with old-fashioned frivolity — musical chairs, a slumber party, a scavenger hunt, even a giant pinball machine. A life-size chess game has two glamorous, red- and green-sequined queens going head to head amid a battalion of bishops and rooks, while a card game in another window features a frog splashing into a pond, an ace of spades clutched in one of his webbed feet. Thanks to the dazzling perspective — all these tableaux are viewed from overhead even though they are being viewed straight on. — these are the most dizzying windows in town. No small feat I can tell you. All these mannequins and props and display have to be rigged and bolted to the back wall and rigged with hidden wires to give the appearance your viewing it from over head. THIS IS VERY TIME CONSUMING...TRUST ME. You could look at each window for 10 or 15 minutes and still see something different. 

This one was probably my favorite!! Now this is a fun card game.
After seeing the inside...it's just as stunning. After seeing these you may see why I have no problem shopping here. Quality goods and excellent top notch service.
You can only get this  in New York.

  11. You'd look great in that fur wrap in the last photo. Some of the windows are so busy, they are hard to see, if that makes sense.

  17. The stores here certainly do not do anything like that. Perhaps they'd draw more customers if they did.
