Description

Bonwit Teller window display featuring women's ensembles by Cabana. One mannequin wears a solid colored, halter neck bathing suit with a long, fabric belt tied around the waist. The other mannequin wears a patterned matching suit piece with a high neck. 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. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwit's Persian Paradise a sun and water series by Cabana. Sports Floor the Fifth."
