Last fall I blogged about Bergdorf Goodman’s windows celebrating Diana Vreeland’s Memos book, and since then I’ve become more and more obsessed with their store windows. There is probably no store in the world as highly regarded as BG for their store windows. Most are truly custom art installations showcasing clothing from the best (and most exclusive) fashion designers in the world. This week I’m going to share a few of my (many) favorites. If you want to read more about their windows, BG has a section of their blog decided to just their windows here. Also check out the documentary Scatter my Ashes at Bergdorf’s which documents the history of this legendary department store and follows the creation of their iconic Holiday windows. Now that my working world is consumed with all things retail and window design, I can now fully appreciate the skill, design and planning that goes into creating these works of art. So next time you’re on 5th Avenue in NYC, check out Bergdorf’s window – you’ll be happy you did!
These typographic balloons are everything (above). I’m betting these windows inspired J.Crew’s store opening windows in London (above & below).
Book lovers unite! BG celebrates its favorite tomes with a special exhibition of vintage books featuring hundreds of books hand-selected from the Seventh Floor’s The Cary Collection (above and below).
Love this analog/Television-inspired window (above).
Hope you love these windows as much as I do. Stay tuned for more BG windows this week!
