Last night we grabbed our girls to take part in our holiday pilgrimage to the BG windows! Let’s just say this year’s windows did not disappoint! Bergdorf’s window maestro David Hoey put five of America’s favorite holidays on ice, literally. Each one of the five windows is dedicated to a holiday and dripping with Bergdorf’s signature whimsical glamour. Can’t make it to NYC? We’re giving you an insider’s peek into all five of the glittering windows.
This pinkalicous window was by far our favorite. The rosy boudoir featured cupcakes, bon bons, love letters and a dazzling chandelier covered in icicles. We’re still dreaming of the Swarovski encrusted cupcake minaudière by Judith Leiber.
A high fashion spider-web covered in Swarovski crystals is the centerpiece of this BG window. In the background you’ll find an intricate chateau inspired by The Vanderbilt Mansion coated with black ice. The nine-foot-foot mannequin is dressed to the nines in a custom black plumed gown by one of our favorite designers, Naeem Khan.
April Fool’s Day
Every year Bergdorf’s has one window that features a visual trick and this year it was the April Fool’s window that got the quirky treatment. The eclectic upside-down garden party is attended by monkeys, bears and a mannequin modeling a gravity defying Oscar de la Renta gown.
This chic springy display celebrates nature in all its glory. Crystal leaves and porcelain animals including an exotic Komodo dragon are just some of the visual treats we spotted in this window. The mannequin dressed in Alexander McQueen resort sits on top of a grassy oasis, which uses one of Hoey’s favorite techniques of showing the plants’ roots creeping underneath the scene.
Fourth of July
This fashionable nod to patriotism features a mannequin dressed in Rodarte marching to the beat of her own stylish drum. The star of this window is an icy bold eagle spreading its wings towards Fifth Avenue.
