So Christmas is coming and with it comes what I love the most about it: Holiday window displays! I remember it as the most exciting part of the holidays when I was a kid, of course, nothing as fancy and glamorous as the displays from New York.
Every store makes its best to show off their decorations for every Christmas, last year Bergdorf Goodman had one that I thought was unique, with bears, elephants, McQueen dresses, etc. This year, Saks decided to "tell" the story of a little girl that got into their parents' gabinet and every different window shows whatever she finds in their, including a Dolce & Gabbana dress that Lady Gaga used and champagne bottles, bubbles, snow flakes, etc.
Bergdorf Goodman offers their customers and everyone who walks around its windowsa fantasy travel, with images, lions, maps, a carriage, the space and obviously amazing clothes, the greatest accesories, evening gowns, coats, etc.
Bloomingdale's on the other hand, chose to display more than 100 screens that play multiple winter scenes with a dark blue background. Macy's blah, just some childish animations. Barneys blew my mind with window where they show like an 18th century dress made out of coffee tins from Illy. Also, Lord & Taylor made some nice displays which included customers' favorites holiday memories.
And last, Henri Bendel, who channeled the famous Nutcraker but in the most stylish way we can think of it, with amazing tutus and props to complement.
So, yes, Christmas is just around the corner. Excitement for many. I just wish I could get everything's on those displays, from clothes to props. And I'm still wishing my real sized bear from Bergdorf Goodman's window from 2009.
