And nobody does it better than Bergdorf's. With its BG Follies theme, the store's visual team drew inspiration from classic Art Deco style. Think Ziegfeld Follies, Vaudeville and Busby Berkeley. And the impending Great Gatsby release can't be a coincidence, can it?
Referring to each window as an act of a production, Act I is a riff on Some Like it Hot, featuring the designs of Marc Jacobs, 3.1 Philip Lim and Elie Saab, among others. Act II, is a tribute to Sally Rand and her famous fan dance, incorporating thousands of white feathers in a mosaic-like pattern. Act III, meanwhile, showcases no fewer than two dozen show girls getting ready to take the stage, each represented by a mid-century miniature American mannequin.
Acts IV and V follow after the jump...
Act IV depicts a Jazz Age circus trainer, bedecked in Alexander McQueen and surrounded by 30 poodles and terriers performing tricks on their perches.
Are you in the holiday spirit yet?
