Window Shopping II

Last year when I blogged about the famous holiday window decorations in New York, I discovered the only ones really worth seeing were those at Bergdorf Goodman. The store's renowned team of visual designers (planning for more than two years) proved me correct again this year with their gorgeous, intricate displays, all themed 'Carnival of the Animals.' According to Bergdorf Goodman, each window features a specific material (paper, glass, and brass, among others) used to assemble the entire display--that means entire ostriches made from hundreds of kinds of paper, bright blue glass mosaic fish and, yes, brass monkeys, and innumerable other kinds of animals made from varying materials (and wearing various ensembles). It is a swoonworthy spectacle, and again this year I offer you my original photographs of the displays. Happy Holidays!
