You're going to need a lot of 120-count crayon boxes to recreate these at home. As part of the 100% Bloomingdale's campaign that promotes the department store's exclusives, WWD reports that certain designers who created pieces inspired by Crayola hues have recreated them in literal crayon for the 59th Street store's window displays. That includes a Nanette Lepore "Unmellow Yellow" dress, a Rebecca Taylor dress in "midnight blue," a Parker creation in "Jungle Green," Rebecca Minkoff's "Banana Mania" dress, and more.

Other designers who participated in the exclusive collection include Amanda Uprichard, Cynthia Rowley, Ronny Kobo, Clover Canyon, Trina Turk, Milly, and Charlie Jade. Get a close-up look at the crayon-adorned mannequins above, and head over to the flagship's second floor on Thursday, February 26th, at 6pm to meet the designers and hop in a themed photo booth.
