Description

Bonwit Teller window display featuring women's ensembles for junior sizes by Anne Klein. Both mannequins are dressed quite formally, with one wearing a matching tweed top and skirt, with gloves, heeled shoes and holds an umbrella. The other mannequin wears a coat, matching skirt, dark leather gloves and a head wrap. They are surrounded by sculptural shapes that mimic potted plants. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwit's own Anne Klein couture for junior sizes, on our Young Seventh Floor."
