Bergdorf Goodman Spring 2014 “Art Matters” window (above), wallpaper by Adam Parker Smith

A few days ago I blogged about the beautiful store windows of Bergdorf Goodman, and as promised, here’s a few more of my favorites! First up are the spring 2014 “Art Matters” windows (pictured above and below). For this set of windows BG commissioned 10 artists to design 10 windows for the store celebrating “Art” as their muse. I especially love the image with custom wallpaper by artist Adam Parker Smith (above). The wallpaper was created by arranging hundreds of tiny 3D objects together to create a patterned wallpaper. The picture doesn’t really do it justice as I was lucky enough to see this in person. Also the clothes displayed in the window matched the concept so perfectly. If you’re digging the look of this, check out Flat Vernacular’s wallpaper that follows the same idea. Moving along, I love the series of mannequin-inspired windows (further below), as I’m obsessed with mannequins!! From all my jobs in fashion/retail, I’m surrounded by mannequins and there’s just something about them. They’re a little bit creepy and a little bit fun. So I love that BG created a series of windows with mannequins as a focal point. Lastly, I wanted to share BG’s holiday windows celebrating Halloween + Jason Wu. How great are the masks? I like how BG takes one idea (like Halloween masks) and fleshes them out in different ways: masks printed and titled on paper, lots of small mask gridded on a wall, etc etc. Great right? Hope you enjoyed this second look into the legendary store windows of Bergdorf Goodman. Get into it.

Bergdorf Goodman store in NYC - Inspired by The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling
Bergdorf Goodman windows inspired by The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling (above).

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).

Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama_Popup2

A few days ago, I blogged about W’s December 2013 Art Issue featuring George Clooney in a suit painted by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. W’s magazine cover inspired me to look more into her work and the 2012 Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama collaboration, images of which I also shared in the previous post. Today I’m sharing some of the A-MAZING in-store experiences Louis Vuitton created around the world in cities like Paris, London and New York. It’s neat seeing Kusama’s work come to life in an retail experience. Each of these pop-up shops are practically works of art themselves. As a windows and in-store experience designer, and someone into textile and pattern design, Kusama’s work is the perfect marriage of the two. So check out these interiors and beautiful store windows below. Embrace the polka dot. Love the polka dot!
