Hi friends, welcome back! I previously shared the adorable Macy’s holiday windows, and today I’m sharing the more edgy and chic windows at Bergdorf Goodman and Bloomingdales. I love that these department stores continue their tradition of going all out to create such intricate and unique holiday windows. I’ll start with my favorite of the two, Bergdorf Goodman located on Fifth Avenue and 58th Street.
Bergdorf’s theme this year is Magic in the Making, “which aims to “draw back the curtain of luxury” to feature the imagination and many skills that go into creating special items, including woodcraft, dress-making, paper sculpture, mosaic, papier-mâché, metal craft and scrapbooking.” I read that the windows took over ten months to create and over 10,000 hours from the brainstorming to construction.
I would love to wear this dress for a night, the jewels are stunning!
There’s so many little details and dimensions to these windows. This one is my favorite.
In my opinion, Bergdorfs has the chicest and most detailed windows of all the department stores. There’s so much going on in each window that you’ll notice something new each time you walk by. I like to visit a few times each season to admire them.
On the other side of Fifth Avenue the men’s store has more modest windows.
A few blocks away on 59th Street and Lexington Avenue, Bloomingdales is proudly celebrating their 150thAnniversary. The theme for their windows is “Best Holiday Ever” and per the Bloomindales press release, “The windows will embody the spirit of the season, with gift giving and making memories as the common thread throughout. Each window will feature a variety of magical elements, from larger-than-life wrapping paper, scissors, and champagne glasses to a toy workshop, a three-dimensional camera feeding images of holiday cards, and more.”
I thought the kid mannequins in these windows were a tad creepy. Maybe it’s just me, but their mannequins are a little too realistic looking for my liking.
What do you think about the Bergdorfs and Bloomingdales holiday window displays?
