Bonwit Teller window featuring women's ensembles by French designer Pauline Trigère. In the center of the window display is a sculpture of a giraffe made out of wooden barrels and planks. The two mannequins are wearing dresses, with a short cape and a short coat respectively. They are also both wearing hats with netted veils, heeled shoes, gloves and brooches. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Brief and Important... The little jacket costumes by Pauline Trigère... Designer's Sixth Floor."
