Retro art in Bergdorf windows

April 2, 2013


Bergdorf has some nice windows assembled which combine 60’s and 70’s art with thriftstore purchases. The background is wall-to-wall, but the mannequins manage to stand out from the visual busy-ness. Still, I was the only person on the sidewalk who had stopped to admire the artistry.

For a pinniped, his hands are quite delicate, she thought. He wants to go for sushi after the show, but she is, as yet, undecided.

may I help you?

Bergdorf Goodman is known for its creative holiday windows. Animals in human clothing are usually entertaining. For me, it beats humans in animal fur every time.

Best holiday windows

The Bergdorf Goodman windows on Fifth Avenue are truly stunning, worth a look if you are in the area. The artists who put together these tableaux worked with themes like paper, metal, and mosaics and didn’t get bogged down with the holidays or merchandise.

In the sun, the Berdorf’s window is a mirror. Nice view of the Plaza and Fifth Avenue. The Tom Ford pants are entirely secondary.

Looking is free. The New York stores often do nice windows specifically for the window shoppers and people strolling up and down the avenues. Dig the happy retro lettering.

The welcome mat at Bergdorf’s

A mini mannequin, a.k.a., a Barbie, is carrying a tiny shopping bag and standing by a welcome mat. The larger mannequin looks like she’s just doing it for the paycheck. She’ll grudgingly let you in the store.

Lotsa heads, turning heads

Bergdorf Goodman has some outstanding old mannequin heads on display. They are all aloof, but in different ways. I think my favorite is the miniature in the middle; she seems surprised to be in with the others. (A store at Time Warner always has some mannequin heads up on a cabinet, should you miss these.)
