My fascination with window displays isn’t limited to London.  Passing by Bergdorf Goodman yesterday, I was hit by the multitude of coloured post-its.  I could have just been inspired by the juicy colours alone and also the fact that post-its even come in such a variety of colours (I’m old fashioned…. I stick to yellow and yellow alone…).  But then take a step back, and of course the post-its take the shape of very famous people insteed (I just about managed to recognise all of them and congratulated myself for not being a complete numpty….).  To be honest, the clothes on the dummies aren’t inspiring but I really must look into the possiblity of creating a fabric post-it note dress which immediately sprung to mind after walking past this display.

    They don’t mess around at Bergdorf’s when they do window displays. What a cool post, thank you!

    unfortunately, my entire life is orgainzed on post-its… and i’m thinking of taking a language course based on them too.
    :)
    really… its nice to see other inspired by these little square things.

    The Post-Its all together look like one of those colourful LCD screens you get for video games. ..

    No wonder I can’t find any of the helpful notes I’ve written to myself.

    oo nice, i like the mona lisa. yes, the rodarte show was quite something wasnt it? i got a glimpse of it this morning before going to school and i was just dying to look through it properly all day.

  9. Jill says:

    I took me a while to realize that the post its actually made images. It’s a really cool display, must of taken a while and a half.

  10. I really like the use of a normal, even mundane item and turning it into a work of art and something completely unexpected.

    They are pretty amazing windows. I saw them about 2 months ago in NYC.

    I walked by that last week quickly and thought of Apartment Therapy’s post-it posts…but I didn’t realize they were actually strategically placed!

  14. …A postmodern ready made :-)

    I love the creativity of some window displays. This idea is really original and definitely striking!

  16. Top Bird says:

    Wow, beautiful windows – and a really clever take on pixel art.

  17. Rachel says:

    That is certainly one creative, beautiful and lovely window. Its so bright and artistic, it really catches the eye while making the viewer come in to take a closer look
    Thanks for posting the pics :)

  18. This made me nostalgic to be back in NYC…thanks for sending a little taste of home over here to Paris…

    the person who did the post it looks a lot like
    the French artist Space Invader… only he uses rubix cubes. check it out: http://www.supertouchblog.com/2007/10/09/uklondons-space-invasion/#more-2968

    I’m glad I’m not the only one with the obsession. I shot them a few weeks ago when they first went up. Heck, my entire blog is dedicated to my obsession for store windows. Bergdorfs always has the most creative and the best. I don’t know how they do it weekly, it’s seriously amazing.

  23. Ali says:

    heh, I took a photo of the exact same window display to post on my blog. never got around to it, though, cause moving is crap. I took a few other window displays too (did you see the Mondrian-style windows at Henri Bendel?)

  24. ambika says:

    This reminds me of some of the art displays you see inside the downtown Anthropologie. They often have really impressive, abstract work there, which is so unexpected for a chain store.

  25. Very clever windows! There is something obsessive about using a material such as post-it notes.

  26. Similar to other types of insurance, an auto repair insurance policy is a contract between a vehicle owner and the car insurance company which puts the responsibility of repair bill payment.
