Almost every window had a moving part. These robotic windows were dreamy, mystical, underwater, and most of all, blue.
The prominent nautical theme showed a mother and daughter together in almost every window. (I must admit that the daughter is slightly creepy-looking in that Chucky sort of way, while the mother looks detached and faraway — not so far from the NYC reality, eh? Couldn’t we have found slightly smiling mums and lovelier children, I couldn’t help thinking. But the sentiment of a mother-daughter aesthetic team is adorable and timeless.)
Together, these duos explored the sea, the circus, elephants, hot air balloons, and mystical white birch forests full of butterflies and ladies in butterfly-like dresses.
Overall, it was an impressive wonder in that it portrayed prowess of design and technology, high aesthetics and a sense of childlike wonder.
Everyone wants to be wowed by these windows every Christmas, and scores of adults are as dreamy-eyed as the children. Way to step it up near Bergdorf level, Saks!
I heard two tourists say this year to each other, “But these are not even Christmas-themed.”
“But this is New York City,” the other said.
Well put, my friend, well put.
And after the jump, a pretty, sexy Choo that was displayed in those windows.
The only brand I instantly recognized was Choo.
I really like this shoe, but it took me a long time of looking at it to decide that. It’s not at all my typical style (I don’t usually like too much ornamentation on the front), but it’s pretty and sexy.
Kind of like getting to be a sexy ballerina! Did any of us really enjoy ballet class, or did we just want to wear pretty wrapped shoes and pink leotards?
Well, either way, now you get to play at it in these shoes fit for a queen of the stage. 4.25 inches, leather, 15 glittering crystal discs on the front. I wish I could afford them! Enjoy, crystallati! (And let me know if you see a similar, cheaper shoe!)
