Description

Bonwit Teller window display featuring women's patterned ensembles by Cabana. One mannequin wears a mid length patterned dress and the other one wears light colored pants and a long sleeved patterned shirt. Both mannequins are accessorized with sandals and pearl jewelry. The background features contrasting ribbon hanging--forming a tent-like structure--with a braided bread loaf and metal carafe placed on the textured flooring. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwit's Persian Paradise a sun and water series by Cabana. Sports Floor the Fifth."
