Bergdorf Goodman’s Hauntingly Beautiful ‘Crimson Peak’ Window Displays

Bergdorf Goodman’s Hauntingly Beautiful ‘Crimson Peak’ Window Displays

Bergdorf Goodman, the legendary department store in New York City, is renowned for its visually stunning and over-the-top window displays. The holiday-inspired windows are beautiful enough to stop pedestrians on the street, and have become a highly-anticipated Christmastime staple. In celebration of Legendary Pictures’ Crimson Peak, Bergdorf Goodman has created several new window displays featuring pieces from some of the world’s most famous fashion designers. The Crimson Peak special is the department store’s largest display based on a feature film.

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.

Featured Designers: Oscar De La Renta, Tom Ford

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.

Featured Designers: Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Saint Laurent, Gareth Pugh, Altuzarra, Anthony Vaccarello 

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.

Featured Designers: J.Mendel, Andrew GN

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.
