While Bloomingdale's was busy unveiling its windows on Lexington Avenue last night, Bergdorf Goodman debuted theirs on Fifth Avenue. So far, Bergdorfs are hands-down the most fashion-focused of the bunch, with brands like Valentino, Jimmy Choo, Oscar de la Renta, J. Mendel, and more taking center stage. The windows are titled "Holidays on Ice," and each depict a different holiday in a snowy, frosty landscape.
Highlights include a McQueen mannequin perched on an icy tree for Arbor Day, a Swarovski spiderweb for Halloween, and a window that was installed upside-down for April Fool's Day. See them all after the jump.
The windows were unveiled by the Brooklyn-based STREB Extreme Action Company, whose performance included descending from the building and opening the curtain.
