Bergdorf Goodman’s Calendar Girls

Bergdorf Goodman’s 2008 Holiday window display, Calendar Girls.

Holiday escapism ~ Bergdorf Goodman Christmas windows are always lavish with sumptuous theatrical settings stuffed with items, some for sale, others not. In 2008, the store’s big five Fifth Avenue windows were devoted to fanciful interpretations of the Four Seasons, or the Four Seasons plus one extra season, in a palate of snowy silvers and grays with flashes of gold. There are human mannequins with animal heads as well as a liberal use of taxidermy specimens. Included was Eva Longoria’s beaded fringe Marchesa Emmy awards dress among other opulent outfits.

The 2008 Holiday window display featured a year-round journey with seasonal muses in ethereal white-on-white schemes. David Hoey and his window design team drew inspiration for the theme from the dioramas at the American Museum of Natural History. The 58th Street windows, as well as those of the men’s department across the street, featured fanciful anthropomorphistic depictions of leisure-time activities.
