Barneys Baz Dazzled Holiday Windows

Baz Luhrmann is known for creating some of the most magical scenes in modern cinema, so when it came to curating Barneys‘ holiday windows you knew the result would be anything but ordinary!

BAZ DAZZLED sees the windows of the iconic department store transformed into an otherworldly sensory experience of mechanical woodland creatures, snow flakes and ice caves, with a New York twist.

Luhrmann worked alongside Catherine Martin and Dennis Freedman plus visual artists Anthony Howe and Chris Cole to conceive THE must-see window displays of 2014.

Watch below as supermodel Gisele Bundchen sits down with Baz (who worked together on the new Chanel No.5 fragrance commercial) to discuss the collaboration.

Each window display houses live performances from now until 31st December (schedule below).

TRUTH

Barneys-Holiday-Windows-2014-Truth

Artist and sculptor Chris Cole has created an 8-foot-tall, 6-foot-wide steampunk talking owl which gravely speaks his words of wisdom, scored to Pentatonix’s version of Madonna’s “Holiday.”


BEAUTY

The Spirits of the Snow star in this window, realised by Washington-based artist Anthony Howe and voiced by Pentatonix. These handmade kinetic sculptures, previously only seen as outdoor wind machines, come to life within the window—the first time Howe’s work has been shown in an interior space. The movement of these spirited characters is entirely generated by wind machines, which sets them into mesmerizing motion.


FREEDOM

Celestina the ice princess, imprisoned for eternity in her ice cave in our mythical tale, skates forlornly in the last window while dreaming of freedom.


LOVE

Barneys-Holiday-Windows-2014-Love

A magical corner of Central Park is the mythical setting for the first window, which depicts a forest of 9-foot chromed mushrooms in a rainbow of colours. Elphresh the elf contorts and dances in and around his 14-foot-wide gold and bejeweled boom box, in pursuit of his impossible love, Elfemeral.
