Bergdorf Goodman - next window

May I surmise that each window has it's own color theme? This is starting to seem like an incredibly opulent Advent calendar.

I love the green and the bisque white with the accents of red.

Is there such a thing as restrained gaudiness? Understated camp?

Really, they are marvelous.

These windows are fabulous and ornately bizarre. More please.

My partner Brion thought they were ridiculous ... no accounting for taste and have just recalled his gaycard and sent him for re-education.

Are these windows a part of the seasonal festivities leading into your holiday period or are they always like this?

I've always seen a parallel between Tony Duquette and soft core porn photographer James Bidgood. Both strove to create "beauty" in their settings, with layered color, texture and pattern - the luxury in the encompassing effect rather than (necessararily) dollars spent.

Tony Adams said...

Yes, Tony Duquette and james Bidgood are the parents who made the lunch that Pierre and Gilles ate.

Why, it's almost as cluttered as my place.

More stylish, though. Slightly.

did you notice the small windows with Duquettes stuff? did you watch Princess Mononoke, the Japanese animation? i am almost sure those characteres were taken from there: Mononoke and the wolf, the woman in charge of the iron melting factory and the horns of the deer (which was the forest god).

Please tell me if i am inventing all this?
