For a change, it's not just the adults of the city who are pointing at and "oohing" and "aahing" over the windows at Bergdorf Goodman; it's the kids too. BG has juxtaposed some of the most stunning fashions available right now with hulking props of hideous creatures, and everyone's doing double-takes over Frankenstein up against Lanvin and Proenza Schouler staring down a Velociraptor. And even if the Velociraptor is toting a jeweled Leiber clutch, its pure Jurassic Park looks will still most likely show up in our nightmares.
So how do these windows say "spring is here?" Well, while Louis Vuitton across the street and Van Cleef & Arpels next door both do the pretty-pretty birdcages thing, Bergdorfs is taking the wilder, more vivid route.
