If you like glitter and lights and holiday glamour at every turn, take a trip to the city that doesn’t sleep. There is no place like New York at Christmas.
Two years ago the Fab Fam all descended upon NYC and told you about our favourite holiday window displays.
This year I rolled solo, so to share the beauty my eyes are still trying to recover from, here is a photo diary of the most amazingly glitzy and completely festive windows NYC has to offer this year:
Two years ago we all adored the Bergdorf Goodman’s ‘Holiday on Ice’ window and they, once again, captured my heart. So many sparkles, so much glitz and drama.
A Merman bedazzled in pearls!
A Rub-haired Queen and her crystal-encrusted guards.
Next is Saks & Company. A massive store with so many windows all decorated in a romantic, Winter Palace theme.
Oh, the opulence!
Dramatic and enchanting.
If I was her, I couldn’t decide what cake to eat first either!
Iconic 5th Avenue store – Tiffany’s & Co also came out strong.
So intricate with the focus on their extraordinary gems and jewels.
Dolce & Gabana are having some fun with a space-themed window.
Kate Spade has rotating mannequins with giant bows for heads.
McKenzie Childs, in a similar feel to Kate Spade, has rotating mannequins with lamps for heads.
David Yurman has a startled looking rabbit.
And let us not forget Barney’s New York. Each window has a different, yet complementary theme – ICE.
Their area with collaboration from Ice Castles was created over two weeks of 24/7 care, created by three ‘ice farmers’, using 500 gallons of water and creating 2000 colour-changing icicles.
Stores were not only decorating their windows. Cartier is wrapping the whole store up in a bow.
Harry Winston looks like a regal, old-timey mansion along 5th Ave.
Dior was lit up while their windows are filled with colourful ornaments, contrasting their neutral clothing.
The lights, the sights, the sounds.
Only in NYC and only during the holidays.
