PSFK recently hit the cold and snowy streets of NYC to scope out the most innovative and artistic retail store window displays for 2008. This is our fourth year and you’ll notice some familiar names on the list that we’ve featured before. This year we found intersting examples along a wide spectrum of retailers and beyond. We pulled out three examples that speak to a theme we saw many retailers address. Tradition.

Department Store Bergdorf Goodman intrepreted the four seasons in its 5th ave facing windows. But on the 57th street side were a couple of black,white, and red windows that visually intrepretate the traditional ways we communicate during the holidays. They mix history and modern style using layered black and white illustrations. One window shows a stylishly dressed switchboard operator, another is about card writing. There’s even a nod to the term ‘snail mail’.
