Baz Dazzled; Barney's Holiday Windows by Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin at Barneys, Madison Ave.
With tragic tales transpiring over the last week, Barney's front façade bears a fitting banner, reminding viewers that "A life lived in fear is a life half lived." As unveiled last week, the Great Gatsby's design duo Baz Luhrmann and wife Catherine Martin beautify Barney's New York with energizing extravagance. Add merry melodies and ancillary animation to an arts-inspired theme and marvel with awe at a moving menagerie of metal, sensational sculptures and oversized opulence in the store's windows.
