It's that time of the year again?when stores around the city prep for Halloween by transitioning their windows from what's most attractive to what's scariest. All this week we'll be peeking at ghoulish displays of boutiques of Bleecker Street. Finally we have Ralph Lauren's very own skeleton biker gang.
Anybody looking to perfect their hardcore biker gang costume with a Ralph Lauren leather jacket in the high triple (or low quadruple) digits? Not a problem, since the RL store on Bleecker has outfitted itself with a skeleton biker gang showing off whatever black and metal wares they've got, naturally avec motorcycle helmets.
It's impossible to get all the detail during the daylight, but may we recommend sauntering past this evening during your trick-or-treating, to appreciate all the rusty bike apparatus and generally spooky mood that the window has managed to bring forth. We have to admit, this window is out favorite Halloween window on the Bleecker blocks, and it's just too bad that the bones will only be around a couple more days.
