bergdorf_holiday_2009_w17_01NEW YORK, Dec 23, 2009 / FW/ — Attention to details is the byword on these two Bergdorf Goodman Holiday 2009 store windows located on the North side, along 58th St.

Window 17 is a statement in green with two topiary horses! By itself, it is not Christmas-y, but together with Window 16 (beside it), which is red, and then the message becomes clear. In fact, if you put all these four windows (15, 16, 17, 18), there is a subliminal travel theme.

Window 18 has the mannequin all dressed up to go on a trip, plus all her luggage and cameras helping to give that impression.

I used the word subliminal because the Cruise collections are actually already in stores right now. January is traditionally a month for cruises as people try to get away from the dreary winter.
