A Luxury Christmas at Bergdorf NYC

Sharing is caring!

Bergdorf Goodman is the grande dame of New York luxury retailers.  Located on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th streets since 1899, she is the only New York-centric luxury store left in the city.  All the other department stores have spread their influence outside of New York. (I’m looking at you Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys).  For me, Bergdorf NYC is quintessential Manhattan style, class and luxury.  After all, it was one of Carrie Bradshaw’s favourite stores in Sex and The City.

What better way to celebrate Christmas in Manhattan than to check out how it’s being done at Bergdorfs?

Bergdorf’s Christmas Windows

The store windows at Bergdorf NYC this Christmas was all about the sparkle.  Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl would have approved.

Bergdorf’s Christmas Department

The Christmas department at Bergdorf NYC is small but exquisite.  Everything is beautifully detailed with prices to reflect such craftsmanship.

I heard a fair bit of Russian while browsing this part of the store.  Presumably people have so much space they need life size animatronic polar bears and Santa Clauses to fill their Manhattan penthouses.  I love the fact that the Santa Claus statues are in magnificent robes.  No, red velour for these Santas.

I loved the look of these bejewelled velvet tree skirts and matching (!) socks.  One or the other as Oprah would say or it will look too match-matchy.  Unless, of course, that is the look you are going for.

I have a thing for shoes on Christmas trees and fell in love with the gold sneaker ornaments.  My daughter, of course, wanted the gold heels.

Check out these beautiful ornaments in a short movie clip.

 

Visiting Bergdorf NYC

Bergdorf Goodman is located on 5th Avenue on 57th and 58th streets.  You can’t miss it.  It’s a giant mansion at the very top of Fifth Avenue on the side of the street that becomes Central Park.  In fact the near-perfect location was the site for Cornelius Vanderbilt’s home during the Gilded Age.

Next stop after Bergdorf is the Plaza Hotel.  We spent time at Bergdorf’s then had tea in the Plaza Hotel atrium.  My kids know the Plaza Hotel from the Eloise books as well as the movie, Home Alone 2. So mama was happy and so were the kids.  Daddy just suffered along, carried shopping bags and complained about the prices.

  1. It seems like the variety of window decorations is enormous in NYC. One day we hope to visit at Christmas time, meanwhile I love looking at the decorations in blogs. I like that Santa has ditched his red ensemble here!

  2. I took some photos of Bergdorf’s window last week but didn’t include them in my post. I didn’t go inside though.
    Looking forward to seeing your photos and hearing what you think of The Plaza.
    A belated Merry Christmas to you and your family, Shobha. Wishing you all the very best for the New Year.

    1. Thank you! The Plaza was packed and quite loud with so many people there. Lots of pretty little girls dressed up so it must be a tradition for some families.

  3. I love looking at the Bergdorf windows! I’ve only ever been to NYC once, and it happened to be right before Thanksgiving…when the windows were on display. They always amaze me – so beautiful and detailed.

    thank you for sharing with us at Photo Friday!
