It has been a cold winter but the weather warmed up a little so I went for a brief walk on 5th Avenue. In a previous post, I opined how there are only a few stores left that really do Christmas well.
Fortunately, those that remain are living up to reputations of creating outstanding windows. I managed to get to a few of them along 5th Avenue and plan on getting to a few on Madison Avenue.
Bergdorf Goodman, the department store on Fifth Avenue between 57th and 58th streets always has some of the most artistic and luxurious holiday windows. This year’s theme is “Bergdorf Good Times,” which “evokes a time-honored spirit of a holiday fête but with a twist” according to the department store. ( I enjoyed the color and fashion but overall each window seemed very busy.
Note: Across the street is their men’s store -many people miss it!
The entire building of Cartier’s Fifth Avenue store is wrapped in a giant bow in the company’s signature red. I don’t think it has changed in several years.
Saks Fifth Avenue has its windows in honor of the new animated films Frozen 2.
The following is a quick rundown of other notable stores.
Dior is a luxury label’s designer fashion store, also selling cosmetics, jewelry & other accessories.
There are few stores as intrinsically associated with New York City as the Tiffany & Co. flagship store on Fifth Avenue. It was through those windows that Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly stared as she ate her morning croissant in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
ere are some photos of windows along the way
Along with the stores above, there are plenty of holiday lights and displays located throughout the city. So, enjoy!
