We promised we would return with a window report, and this time the winner is Bergdorf Goodman once again. Sorry to be redundant, but there really is no competition, at least not this week. Everyone else's displays just looked like merch, merch merch. Somehow Bergdorf's made a set of co-op windows with www.nyc.gov work brilliantly. This one we refer to as Subway Twister, a tribute to the Department of Transportation that has a perception switch we love. The gorgeous Missoni clothes are just a complement to the composition. After the jump, see Departments of Sanitation, Parks and Recreation and the New York Public Library windows as well as some other runners-up.

Hermès must also be noted for creativity. these windows were designed by artist Pablo Cano, and we can't resist a dancing elephant.
Barney's should step up their game. It seems we have seen variations on this design a thousand times, but it is always good to see a window full of Alaïa, and the handbags-as-heads are cute. The Jil Sander tableau is also a witty take on minimalism.
