After the L’École Van Cleef & Arpels evening discussion “Great American Collectors, Then & Now” at the Cooper-Hewitt, I stopped by Bergdorf Goodman to have a look at their windows. The backgrounds were totally bare on the 58th Street side of the store, allowing the focus to be on the glamorous dresses, which were pastel confections of eyelet, lace, tulle, and embroidery. I loved these very feminine looks, especially with the cotton candy hair on the mannequins!

The Fifth Avenue side of the store featured one-of-a-kind tapestry sculptures by Frederique Morrel. My favorite looks there were the embroidered dress by Valentino and the shift by Andrew Gn.
