This Bonwit Teller window display features a bold graphic backdrop that compliments the graphic ensemble designed by American designer James Galanos. The backdrop consists of cut out circles that contain black and white semi circles. The look itself is a black and white jumpsuit with bold line details. The mannequin is also wearing a hat and heeled shoes. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Fashion greatness-- Galanos makes it a graphic statement in black and white! Bonwit's famous Designer Salon, Sixth Floor"
