What better way to open the Christmas season, than a walk by the stunning Holiday Windows of Bergdorf Goodman in the Fifth Avenue? Every single year I make sure this happens. As a family and in early December, we book a whole Sunday in our schedule and we drive to New York with only one thought in mind: to indulge the artistic and beautiful windows of this established shop in the Apple City. We don’t miss one single year. It happens that these windows inspire us as a family to embrace Christmas as a special season where family should always be first in the name of love and happiness. This is our tradition, one that we intend to keep as long as Bergdorf Goodman lets us.
The way David Hoey and his visual team take in this responsibility towards the people that await this moment the whole year, is what makes it so magical. Bergdorf Goodman shows that they are more than a store. They prepare their own special and free show to everyone that goes inside store but mostly to the ones that can’t dare to go in and lose themselves within the alluring gifts products they sell. It’s like a special Christmas street show that embellishes the city and warms our hearts. I can’t describe you better than this… You must see it for yourself.
The theme of this year’s Bergdorf Goodman’s Holiday Windows is “The BG Follies of 2012”, inspired by the entertainments, shows, revues and musicals of the 1930s; “a miniature revival of classic Art Deco style”. And at KOKET we love Art Deco, right team?
For those who can’t travel to New York to appreciate it I leave you with some pictures by Ricky Zehavi. Hope you love it!
Or you can always ask Santa for the book Windows at Bergdorf Goodman: Special Edition, by our much-loved luxury coffee-table-book publisher Assouline.
With love, Janet Morais.
