This year the store honored the Arts in its display this year, with windows celebrating literature, architecture, theater, painting, dance, sculpture and film. Bergdorf Goodman’s team of display artists spent 11 months planning and producing the spectacle, which will be on view through January 4, 2015.
David Hoey, the man who designed the windows said: “Early this year, the creative departments at Bergdorf Goodman selected a one-word holiday theme for 2014: Inspired (..) We decided to base each window on a major art form, drawing equally from the fine arts, performing arts and applied arts. For our main windows, we settled on literature, architecture, theater, painting, music, dance, sculpture and film. Each window would be designed independently from the others. Each would be made from its own set of materials. But the entire set of windows would constitute a sort of eight-lesson course in art appreciation.
You’ll need time to look at all these : the blueprints, buildings and ionic columns in the “Architecture” window, the neon lights of “Theater”, the silvery horns trumpeting “Music”. So do not rush. Steve Jobs said: “Everything is important- that success is in the details.” By the way the Apple store is across the road from Bergdorf Goodman.
