Description

Bonwit Teller window display featuring a women's ensemble for junior sizes by Anne Klein couture. There is a spotlight on the mannequin that casts shadows on the plain wall behind it. The mannequin wears a striped dress, a dark overcoat, leather gloves, heeled shoes and holds a purse. Around the mannequin are sculptures made of metallic materials that mimic blooming flower plants. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwit's own Anne Klein couture for junior sizes, on our Young Seventh Floor."
