Display windows don’t usually make me stop and stare, let alone snap shots. This group of displays for Saks Fifth Avenue here in San Francisco literally dared me not to stop and be amazed. I’m having a hard time believing I’m the only city-dweller who’s in awe.
While I can’t really comment in any meaningful way on the fashion, the setup, the mannequins, or any other elements, I can say I think these have to be the coolest windows I’ve ever seen. I wasn’t the only one who stopped that morning either. A woman out walking her two dogs joined me for a couple of seconds to add a bit of her awe to mine. I’m sure if I had waited say another hour or five, well, you know.
I’m a day or so late in posting this, but still thought it worth ‘pinning to the board’. The ‘Gung Hay Fat Choy’ lettering as well as the collage- style stacking of the shots are my doing, but I claim nothing else… well, except the raising of the camera and button mashing!
I kind of wish I could tell the originators of these layouts they did a spectacular design job. Maybe they already know? The display will be up for the city’s viewing pleasure and to generate some in-store sales until March 8th. If you find yourself here in San Francisco, I highly recommend making your way to Union Square to check these windows out!
Happy Chinese New Year …
Gung Hay Fat Choy.
