Come along on PSFK’s virtual tour of the best of New York City’s retail holiday windows from 2010.
PSFK brings you another collection of the most creative, eye-catching, and artistic holiday window displays from retailers around New York City. This year we covered an area spanning from the Upper East Side to Soho. We saw some interesting contrasts in style on how the season was represented. On one end was the rustic, nature inspired windows from Hermes and Anthropologie and at the other was the spare modernism from Calvin Klein and the monochromatic tones of Polo Ralph Lauren in Soho. Also of note are the unexpected product placement collaborations of Barneys/Illy coffee and Paul Smith/Smeg refrigerators.
If we had to recommend a must see, it is of course Bergdorf Goodman. This year the theme was travel and transportation and as usual they packed a ton of detail in each window. The centerpiece is the space travel window featuring Marc Jacobs. It is filled with vintage star charts, silver reptiles, industrial parts, and two models straight out of a fifties sci-fi flick. The main 5th Ave side windows draw the biggest crowds, but the smaller ones around the corner are also worth a look. The neon sign filled window on 58th street is hard not to miss at night.
We’re featuring a photo of each of our favorite windows here. If you want to see more, head over to the gallery containing 180+ images.
