Birthday windows at C. Wonder Soho
Alexander Wang's Grand Street Store is ready for Halloween!
This week, I walk through Soho on my way home from work. C. Wonder's Birthday windows incite a double take with brightly colored piñatas, fringe, confetti and an upbeat festive feel. I flash back to childhood for a minute reminiscing on innocence and squeals of delight upon breaking the piñata. On Grand St., Alexander Wang's cage has merchandise on meat hooks and a covered cadaver clutching a red bag--Eerie! Last, Aritzia's windows house mannequins in winterwear against planetary backdrops. Aside from the Halloween and "abstract" windows, it's nice to see science slip into a window display. Speaking of which, did you know that 5 planets (Mars, Jupiter and Venus before sunrise and Mercury and Saturn after sunset) are clearly visible in October 2012? Go out, have a look, and be sure to check back next week!
