Window 1: Corridor
The first Bergdorf Goodman window was inspired by the ominous gothic corridors of Crimson Peak, as envisioned by Guillermo del Toro. In a haunted mansion that breathes and bleeds, these corridors are like the arteries that flow through it, studded with teeth-like spikes that frame the characters like an insect in a killing jar.

Window 2: Cemetery Gates
The second window showcases the wrought iron gates that lead to Crimson Peak, looking out onto a world of restless spirits. The cemetery that lies beyond shows where a key character from the film is laid to rest, but sometimes the sins of the past cannot be buried–even if they were committed in the name of love. After all, love drives us to do mad things. Love makes monsters of us all.
Window 3: Elevator
The house in Crimson Peak was conceived by Guillermo del Toro as a living thing. The wind gives it breath, and molten red clay is the lifeblood pulsing through its veins. The third window showcases the spine of the house: the elevator shaft. Connecting every level and penetrating the heart of Allerdale Hall, this elevator carries our heroine into the film’s deepest mysteries.

Window 4: Bathroom
Inspiring the fourth showcase is the bathroom where one of Crimson Peak’s most haunting scenes takes place. In this place of darkness and desire, a terrible crime took place which the house cannot let go, and mournful spirits of the past return with a warning for the living, shining light on despicable deeds that should never be spoken of again.

Window 5: Attic
The fifth Bergdorf Goodman window is inspired by the haunting attic space from Crimson Peak, a secret place of childhood secrets where moth wings flutter and skeletal timbers creak. As imagined by del Toro, the mansion in the film feels like flesh and bone, as though the house has a soul… but the real horror comes from the human heart and the human spirit within it.
