Look at all these spinning shoes. Pretty cool, no? Like, as far as department store windows go? While we're not totally sure why, exactly, Barneys has chosen to create "SpinCycle," a window display in which designer heels, sneakers, and handbags spin around as if in a kaleidoscopic funhouse, on the other hand, who cares? It's fun! Wheee!

"We really tapped into the feeling of summer with a riot of color," explains the installation's creative director Dennis Freedman. Sure! You've got 'til August to see it IRL.
