Bonwit Teller window display featuring women's skirt suit by Christian Dior, styled on a mannequin with a hat and pearl jewelry. The mannequin is posed holding a construction jackhammer--breaking apart a concrete slab in the shape of a heart.  A banner at the bottom of the display reads "A good designer suit is the heart of the matter in fashion by Christian Dior. Fifth Floor, Suit Saloon."
