Bonwit Teller window display featuring women's swim and resort ensembles by Cabana. The background features geometric, star-like pattern paneling--similar to Islamic art---with a table placed in front.  The table displays a vessel, book, and roll of bread. The two mannequins wear patterned, strapless beach dresses. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwit's Persian Paradise a sun and water series by Cabana. Sports Floor the Fifth."
