For Easter, Marc Jacobs, the retail king of the West Village, filled his store windows with flowers and had customers take photos with a man in a chicken suit. For the holidays, Jacobs has decided to do something equally non-denominational and odd: he's put together a wintry scene with a big paddleboat in the shape of a swan that shoppers can sit inside for photo ops. The Swan Lake-like feel is enhanced by store staffers who are
forced required to wear white tutus. Tchaikovsky would be so honored.
