By Wilhelmina van Royen If you take a jaunt through Union Square, you will be treated to some interesting artwork in the window displays of various stores.
This is one of the installations for Louis Vuitton that was made with contributions from the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.
The eyes decorate the walls behind several windows in a floor-to-ceiling display. The vibrant colors, polka dots, and surrealist images are signature of Kusama’s style.
Macy’s has its own creative display promoting new women’s wear for a variety of designers. Some exclamation marks are pasted in neat rows against the wall, while others create swarms and hang in lines as if they are butterflies or birds.
The mannequins are positioned at odd angles, some even flying. The legs only mannequins aren’t even touching the ground! The whole thing is whimsical and fun, entertaining and eye-catching. You won't get better window shopping anywhere else.
Not only is it fun to look at, but it is a unique way to entice people to check out the rest of the store.
