Pride Week may have officially ended this past weekend, but the passing of the Same-Sex Marriage Law on Friday night means that Pride Week is getting its second wind. In celebration, a slew of West Village stores have covered their storefronts in rainbow flags, but a few have gone further, theming their whole windows around the gay marriage struggle. These are the Rainbow Windows.
It's crazy to think that this is Michael Kors's first Pride Week with his new location on Bleecker Street. The store has only been open for six months and already we'd quickly award it the best Pride windows in the area. The concept?in partnership with the Human Rights Campaign?is fully focused on the same-sex marriage law.
Rows of champagne flutes lead up to prim and proper white wedding cakes, topped with either a pair of grooms or a pair of brides. It's so classy and illustrative and celebratory at the same time that it's already got us wondering how Kors will top it next year.
Know some same-sex couples who get engaged this weekend? The windows of Michael Kors would be a nice place to begin wedding gift shopping; most of the displays are paired gift-ready items. Blingy white watches for the brides, anyone?
