BENDEL GETS POLITICAL: Henri Bendel is getting into the voting spirit. Today, the store will unveil its bipartisan windows featuring a group of five mannequins dressed in the latest cocktail dresses from Chloé & Reese and Greta Constantine. The girls are flanked by red and blue polling booths, each one representing a political party. Today, each mannequin can be seen with a large question mark above its head, but Wednesday morning, the question marks will be removed and the group will be placed in front of the winning voting booth. Several pounds of confetti will be thrown over the group in celebration of that party’s win.
Meanwhile, the other two windows, which flank the main door, celebrate the 50th anniversary of the peace symbol, with a tag line saying “Peace Is the New Black.” Inside, shoppers can choose from a range of peace symbol products from brands like e.vil, Sir Alistair and Yummi Glass. “We wanted to give these two historic and important events the Bendel point of view,” said Ed Bucciarelli, chief executive officer and president of Henri Bendel. “An irreverent and fashionable spin while underscoring the importance of the democratic process and honoring one of the most recognizable symbols in pop culture.” And, of course, one-upping Barneys New York, which plans to make the peace symbol a major focus of its holiday windows.
