Description

Window display at New York department store Bonwit Teller to promote Norman Norell's debut perfume 'Norell'. An editorial from the October 1968 issue of Harper’s Bazaar states, “the fragrance is as distinguished as the clear, classic statement of his clothes." The display, which appears to be in front of the store's jewelry or fragrance department, features two dark pillars topped with glass cubes that display bottles of Norell's perfume in various sizes. An elongated dark cube stands between the two pillars and includes a television screen that is showing a video from Norell's autumn/winter 1968-1969 fashion presentation.
