International Christmas Windows 2019

“That’s what Christmas memories are made from. They’re not planned; they’re not scheduled. Nobody puts them in their blackberry. They just happen.”

Deck The Halls (2006)

It’s time to indulge. Grab that cup of tea and 10th slice of Christmas cake as we head to London, Paris, New York and even Melbourne to uncover the whimsical, quintessential, luxurious and celebrated windows bringing in Christmas 2019.

Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann

The deco dome of Galeries Lafayette has been swarmed by dazzling bees this Christmas as it transformed into a beehive. Dripping their vibrant flowers of every variety over the pine tree, the iconic tree became barely visible under the glittering lights.

Always extravagant, the main window was a medley of animated bees, busily buzzing around incandescent blooms and creating a spectacular Christmas table setting.


Harrods, London

Is it a menagerie or is it Harrods? Both! Animals found in frosty environments such as the brown bear (bearing gifts) and snow leopard (escaping with Elie Saab) to a zebra and mountain goat travelling heavy these holidays with gift boxes strategically mounted on their backs traveled throughout the Harrods windows. Each luxury brand featured in the windows reflected the animal in focus with the framing of the window magically surrounding the scene with twinkling green foliage.

In creating the concept, the store’s Creative Visual Director, Alex Wells-Greco took inspiration from the “fantasy worlds dreamt up by childrens’ writers such as Philip Pullman, particularly the use of animals as figures of magic and escapism.” 


Tiffany & Co, New York

Tiffany & Co this year draws eyes right into their window with a clever miniature carousel story. Ready for the twinkling eyes of both children and adults, the jewellery in their Fifth Avenue flagship store has been presented for the merry season on a tiny city-scape of Central Park. With your attention captured by the life size carousel protruding from the window, as you gaze into the windows, another world comes alive.

Myer, Melbourne

The infamous Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, have made an appearence this Christmas in the Melbourne and Brisbane Myer windows. May Gibb’s gorgeous Australian gumnut baby characters look like they have walked right off the pages of one of her iconic books.

With 800 hand-cut gumleaves, the characters adventure through Christmas scenes with a quintessential Australian influence. Myer said, “Scenes include the Gumnut Babies playing in an Australiana-themed Myer Beauty Department, and even exploring a bush fairy inspired Giftorium.”
