Each May our Fifth Avenue windows honor the MET’s highly anticipated spring Costume Institute exhibition exploring different avenues within the fashion industry and its wildly colorful history. Always stretching ideas beyond comprehension, this year’s exhibition conceives the impossible: conversations between two massively influential Italian designers who shifted the way we dress. Musing upon a 1930s …
Although Fashion Week is over, our Fifth Avenue windows still are dressed for the occasion. See below for what David Hoey and his team dreamed up — including looks from Oscar de la Renta, Joseph Altuzarra, Jason Wu, Peter Pilotto and Burberry Prorsum.
We all know that Bergdorf Goodman is a Mecca for the shoe-obsessed. And no one taps into obsession quite like Christian Louboutin—his devotees see red everywhere they look. Louboutin is celebrating 20 years of thrilling shoes, with everything from a shoe-signing to a 20th Anniversary capsule collection commemorating favorite designs of seasons past. View More
The Holiday Windows are up, lights are hanging on Fifth Avenue, and there’s a line at the airport — it must be time for our holiday video. “Unleashed” is here and it’s ready to rumble around the internet. BG has always been a dog-friendly store but for “Unleashed” we got downright intimate. Dogs had free run through the store (the filming took place at 5am) and as you’ll see, they took full advantage.
We were very happy to work with the Humane Society of New York, which has been helping animals in need since 1904. We hope you enjoy it — and we want to see photos of your dogs for an upcoming project, so start planning your portraits.
Now it’s time to meet Salty and the rest of the pack.
The BG Holiday Windows are a most welcome institution — they give a lot of pleasure to us while others do the hard work. We have the easy part—we show up marvel and take pictures. David Hoey and the visual team have the hard part: planning, building, perfecting, and collecting antiques for more than two years.
Well the work is over and the windows are here: The Carnival of the Animals have arrived. Each window features a specific material that depicts animals you’ll find from icebergs to the tropics—but rarely on Fifth Avenue.
David Hoey is hosting a chic Halloween on Fifth Avenue this week, presenting windows featuring the latest from Alexander McQueen, Jason Wu and Givenchy before a background complementing the masks seen on 58th Street. View More
David Hoey is a collector. Well, perhaps that’s a rather large understatement but hoarder seems too clinical and severe… and David does far, far more than collect. The process unfolds a bit like this: an idea comes to mind and the search begins, across the City and Internet, for months – sometimes spanning over a year. For last November’s Holiday Windows, Hoey & co gathered hundreds of model ships for one of the Wish You Were Here travel-themed windows. Previously he’s hunted & gathered wooden staircases of all shapes, twists and sizes; vintage dolls and mannequins; scissors of all materials & size; sundry whiz-bang curiosities from across the globe; and, most recently, a vintage wardrobe to dress over 1,000 Barbies and dolls.
