Seeing the windows for the first time is always a surreal moment for us. After months of planning and meticulous calculations, the big reveal is a cause for celebration.
This year was all about channeling the spirit of our fine city and the the power of the artist. We enlisted the expertise of French visual artist Joanie Lemercier who collaborated with Mr. Shawn ‘JAY Z’ Carter and Barneys’ Creative Director Dennis Freedman to bring our wildest dreams to life. The multi-part interactive installation features spectacular glittering light shows, 3D mapping and a real life sleigh ride with a fashionable Mr. and Mrs. Claus.
Incorporating the same black, white, gold and silver palette, the enchanting installation complements Mr. Carter’s collaboration with designers like Balenciaga, The Elder Statesman, Rick Owens and Balmain. Stop by our Madison Avenue store to catch a glimpse for yourself and check out our video below to watch the magic unfold piece by piece!
