Magical Windows

Posted by on November 29, 2011

Living in Los Angeles is pretty wonderful.  Except maybe at Christmastime.  Trees just don’t look right with both green leaves and twinkle lights.  Decorations are fewer and farther between than in cities with colder climates.  It basically feels like spring/summer/early fall all year. I don’t miss digging my car out from under feet of snow, or shoveling sidewalks, but Christmastime should have some snow on the ground and frost in the air.

I have never seen the Bergdorf Goodman Christmas window displays, but looking at these photos makes me want to be there.  The sheer volume of items in the displays takes my breath away.

David Hoey and the visual team have done an amazing job once again.  This year is The Carnival of the Animals. “Each window features a specific material that depicts animals you’ll find from icebergs to the tropics—but rarely on Fifth Avenue.”

My favorites are the paper window above and the “Brass Menagerie” below.  The brass window features metal birds by artist Sergio Bustamante.

This is maxamalism at its best.
