This year's holiday window theme is The Present Moment. It features colorful vignettes that depict joyous moments frozen in time where whimsical characters are seen living for the moment and in the moment. The department store also opened a holiday pop-up filled with exclusive New York-inspired novelties. A portion of proceeds from this shop will benefit City Harvest, an organization that helps feed hungry New Yorkers.
Tiffany’s is a gem of a store. While the shop is undergoing a renovation, passersby can still see a festive holiday display in the iconic jewelry store’s windows.
Coach’s slogan of the season is Give A Little Love. Beautiful lights adorn the designer handbag shop’s exterior. Catch a glimpse through the windows of a heart-warming holiday animal display that features penguins and polar bears, all reminiscent of old-fashioned holiday ornaments.
This eye-catching window display features festive designs and products from the shop’s Glow holiday party collection. The fashion-focused display shows off crystal skirts, loafers, silver cross-body bags and many other accessories. Lots of sequin pieces are on display, too...very reminiscent of New Year’s Eve!
Luminaries, a mesmerizing display of colorful lanterns designed by the LAB at Rockwell Group, returns to Brookfield Place with a new experience called Maestro that allows visitors to conduct the canopy using a gesture-controlled instrument to display their own unique light shows in unison with holiday music.

Songs featured include “Silver Bells” by Tony Bennett and “Let It Snow” by Pentatonix.
