Description

Bonwit Teller window display featuring plaid and solid dresses designed by Tina Leser. The mannequins are styled with hats and handbags. The background features a figure made of chicken wire that is wearing fabric draped in a way that is evocative of a male Scottish Highlander costume. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "BONWITS FOR CASHMERE, blanket plaids and wools touched with cashmere by Tina Leser Sports Floor, the Fifth."
