New York Cities Best Holiday Windows Display


One of my favorite things… Holiday window displays in New York City!
And Bergdorf Goodman ALWAYS delivers! Dubbed The BG Follies of 2012, the windows
were inspired by entertainments such as the Ziegfeld Follies, Vaudeville
revues and Busby Berkeley’s Hollywood musicals of the 1930s.  They’re a
miniature revival of classic Art Deco style, touching upon the fantasy
shows of the time — the solo act, the duo, group performance, novelty
act (starring daredevil dogs) and more.
DAVID HOEY discusses the Windows online. 

The BG Follies continue beyond Fifth Avenue, featuring a panoply of
Acts on 57th and 58th Street, as well as at the Men’s Store.  This year
we invite you to Instagram our Holiday Windows with the tag #BGWindows to win a Holiday Windows Prop or print from The Coveteur’s behind-the-scenes trip through our teams’ studios and staging areas.  Our windows will be on display through January 3, and we cannot wait to see how you capture them.

Lord & Taylor has been celebrating the holiday season by decorating their windows for passersby since 1938. Lord & Taylor’s has the most old-fashioned of the holiday windows unveiled this week—appropriate, since they’re commemorating 75 years of December displays. While Bloomingdale’s and Barneys went with non-denominational pop culture themes, Lord & Taylor’s windows are all about Christmas traditions
around the world. They follow Santa Claus as he visits Central Park, a
swanky party (do note the miniature Champagne bottles), and a
lantern-festooned bridge in Asia.

On  Madison Avenue,   Barneys New York’s holiday windows are a must-see. Every year they are hip and stylish, with a nice dose of humor. Some may call Disney World the Happiest Place On Earth.
But around these parts, Barneys New York is just about our happiest
place ever. So why not call it even and join the two together?

Thanks to a few marketing geniuses, Disney and Barneys have come
together and finally unveiled their “Electric Holiday” campaign,
complete with cartoon ads and gorgeous window displays.

Bloomingdale’s holiday windows 2012: Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away

Holiday? Well, they are fanciful. Bloomingdale’s is getting acrobatic this holiday season, with window
displays that depict scenes from Cirque du Soleil’s new cinematic
offering, Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away.

displays are inspired by the story of the little girl behind the famous
newspaper column “Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Clause”.

This year’s Holiday Windows at Saks
were inspired by the delicate, intricate and fascinating art of the
snowflake. But that’s not all! The brilliant lighting projection
masterminded by the prolific Terron Schaefer, Saks Chief Creative
Office, hosts a dazzling array of animated figure skaters, gorgeous red
ribbons and of course, the famous Saks Yet (he who created the snow!)
onto the venerable Fifth Avenue façade. Watch the 2 minute video!
