Windows at Bergdorf Goodman

All the windows at Bergdorf Goodman are amazing, not just those for the holidays.  A new book from Assouline, Windows at Bergdorf Goodman, chronicles many of their fanciful creations.  The delft window above is absolutely gorgeous but my all time favorite is the window with a tilted floor that makes it look like a ship is listing to one side, below.  I lived on West 58th Street for a few years and I always loved walking by the windows every morning on my way to work.  They are like a gift to all New Yorkers.  The limited edition book is hefty not only in size but price at $550.  I'm hoping they come out with a regular version next year so we can all enjoy the store windows from the comfort of our homes.

Those are amazing.

I had a display job right out of college - I spent a lot of sleepless nights artfully designing the front windows for the the holidays.

Living in New York is like living in a Art gallery... You can become inspired everywhere you look.

Oh the Bergdorf windows are always my favorite! And that blue and white dress from Fall 2005 Roberto Cavalli! I posted about that dress last month -- just wow!It's the ne plus ultra of blue and white in fashion. Thanks for sharing, Heather. Since my NYC trip for work just go canceled, this could be as close as I get to the windows this year... :-)

What a fabulous post! I wish I was in New York right now! The first photo of the blue and white window just makes me smile from ear-to-ear! I am SUCH a fan of blue-and-white pottery, and I use it all the time in my designs... almost like a neutral! Thanks for sharing!
