The 8 Best Holiday Window Displays in the World


6. Bergdorf Goodman, New York

The theme of these holiday windows is “Brilliant Holiday” and these windows certainly shine, adorned with more than seven million crystals. Designed to celebrate Swarovski’s 120 years in business, Bergdorf certainly did not hold back this year. The windows here take on a fantastical feeling, featuring a monkey fortune teller who is gazing into a crystal ball and a faux-pearl-studded Poseidon who is presiding over the sea. Considered one of the sparkliest windows of all time, it is certainly worth checking out. Just don’t expect to be able to afford anything in this window, as the dresses are even covered in hand-set crystals.

5. Printemps, Paris

In what appears to be a very clever play, Printemps took advantage of the Climate Change Conference held in Paris this year and dedicated their windows to bringing a little spring into winter. Celebrating their 150th anniversary this year, Printemps brought to life a story about a fairy which has the power to conjure spring in the middle of winter. Window displays are filled with beautiful flowers as well as a light show on the façade of the store. The rose-tinted windows overflow with said flowers, ensuring that Paris is always in bloom.
