Window Shopping at Bergdorf Goodman

February 26th, 2015

Looking for something fun and free to do in NYC this weekend? We highly recommend strolling Fifth Avenue to witness the new and breathtaking Bergdorf Goodman window display, designed in honor of New York Fashion Week. BG commissioned installation artist Eva Petric to create a visionary “Lace Environment” in the windows of the store front.

This immaculate display is called “Personal UNiVERSEs” and consists of thousands of tiny, individual vintage lace pieces that have been combined to create large weblike environments. While the mannequins are dressed in looks from the stores new Spring 2015 collections, Petric’s lace networks serve as the backdrop and surrounding environment. These stunning windows will be on display until March 8th.

According to Petric:
“The assemblages are made out of old, given, or purchased  pieces of lace and hand works. Some I got from family and friends, and many were bought from flea markets around the world. Some were given to me by people who pulled them from storage–even out of cellars. So these pieces really represent for me the trans generational connections that tie us into worldwide webs.”

3 Reasons NYC Rocks

November 13th, 2009

1)Even if you cant afford one item at Bergdorf Goodman, anyone can wander in and almost always spot a celeb. Last week Kelsey Grammer and wife spotted in shoe dept.  PS. Fine dept stores are also very useful for their lovely bathrooms.

2)Street Vendors in Soho.  Some of the best authentic jewelry, hats, art & whatnot are sold on the streets of Soho. Talented folks without the overhead of stores, create and sell edgy & trendy at a fraction of the stores’ prices. TIP: The exception is those located on Broadway. These vendors sell the mass merch shipped in overseas.

3)Because some of the best music can be heard in the subways.
