There's always that extra thrill when a product is showcased through a fusion of two art forms, hypnotizing one to go inside a store to see more. An artsy farsty window display never fails to make our hearts skip a beat and add an ounce of luxe to the label. From primitive backdrops to a Marant dress, to Cartier watches embedded in fluffy and scenic cumulus clouds, scroll down to see the newest store displays we're ogling, from New York to Paris.
Isabel Marant has been working with French ceramist and sculptor, Arnold Goron, for nearly 10 years now. Creating playful window displays that never fail to get attention, this season, Marant's Barneys Madison Avenue window has been filled up with big, primitive sculptures in colorful painted foam and wood.
Cartier has always been one to show off their luxurious watches in style. This time around, they look to Justin Colombier, known for his scenic artworks to evoke an air of elegance and class.
Sarah Illenberger creates a "Cabinet of Curiosities" for Hermes. The German multi-disciplinary artist has also been closely working with the brand for years now, allowing her creative freedom in the making of the Cabinet - its paper sculptures represented an imaginary collection of natural wonders. The wooden cabinets were designed and produced by Adrian Hermanides.
Illenberger also just finished creating the window installation for the 150th anniversary of Parisian department store, Printemps. She made pleated paper fans, lacquered in the brand's color and artistically arranged to create a oversized flower.
How we wish we'd see more of these here.
