In the Window: Henri Bendel's Holiday Court

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

A marked contrast to the slew of "old-fashioned" holiday windows next door at Bergdorf Goodman, the display at Henri Bendel on Fifth Avenue showcases Christmas gluttony in modern and neon-infused splendor. As if in some kind of ecstasy-fueled royal banquet that has quickly degenerated into an orgy, mannequins in silk gowns are splayed about and dripping in stately gems. In a world full of minimalist boutiques, at least we can always trust the department stores to go over-the-top and distract the tourists.
