Home and apparel retailer Anthropologie always has the most beautiful window displays around, but they have outdone themselves with the current crop of designs. A magical mood is created using inexpensive synthetic materials with wintery textures and simple mechanical systems.
The display team at the Rockefeller Center store made an ethereal "breathing" inflated grid system that is operated by industrial fans. In a nearby window, translucent colored plastic shapes are dangled by motors, creating a sparkling layered effect. A vintage parachute adorned with glittering tinsel is draped across another space, while an adjacent window is covered entirely in pieces of scotch tape except for one circle peaking inside at a frosty lamp. Finally, glittering streamers create a subtly-colored backdrop in a different area.
To see these windows and many more, visit the Anthropologie store at 50 Rockefeller Plaza for a holiday season treat.
