Bergdorf's Windows

Bergdorf’s Holiday windows are, so over the top this year that they are a challenge to behold. ‘Labor intensive’ doesn’t even begin to describe this extravaganza of passementarie, quilling, encrustation, and taxidermy, with a dose of steampunk.

During the day, the reflections of Fifth Avenue
upon the glass offer some dreamlike surprises ...

But the general effect is dizzying.

If you visit after dark …

and get up close to explore …

you’ll be transported to a world of fantastical detail.

Glorious, but exhausting, much like the Christmas season in New York!
