New York’s famed department stores are renowned around the world for their holiday spectaculars, and Saks Fifth Avenue has delivered for 2015, transforming into a Winter Wonder of The World. Taking inspiration from some of Earth’s greatest wonders—the Great Wall of China, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, Rome’s Colosseum, and the Taj Mahal—each window depicts a wintry fantasy (an Icy Mermaid above a frozen Barrier Reef, the Empress sliding down a wintry wall, and a gladiator in her ice-cold Colosseum) with global fashion to match. Venture beyond the windows and the store has morphed into a “Winter Palace,” and each department has embraced the theme with icy chandeliers, frosted décor, and chic wintry style. Rival Barneys also embraced a winter tale with their Chillin Out theme, celebrating the icy outdoors (there are even humans in giant walk in freezers carving ice sculptures). But don’t just take our word for it, go check it out for yourself.
