Description

Bonwit Teller window display featuring two women's ensembles. The display features a blue painted back-wall with a floor designed to emulate marble, and a chair in the center of the display upon which one of the mannequins is sitting. The looks are based upon Beau Brummell, a man famed for his fashion and "Dandyism". The sitting mannequin wears pants, layered necklaces, flat patterned shoes and a dark shirt. The standing mannequin is wearing a button down shirt with a large bow at the collar, a long skirt and heeled shoes.  A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Our hats off to Beau Brummell... Dandy Parts by Casino"
