The Summer's Most Eye-Catching Window Displays

Best Summer Window Displays 2013

No, this is not a shot from the most fashionable version of Jurassic Park — dinosaurs have invaded the Louis Vuitton store windows in New York City. The displays center themselves around the gilded, handcrafted skeletons, off of which bags hang and from which mannequins playfully shield themselves.

The dinosaur takeover of Louis Vuitton is just one example of how this Summer's array of store windows is catching consumer attention in an unexpected way. Elsewhere, Kate Spade Saturday has enlisted the help of eBay to create an interactive — and shoppable — storefront, which virtually never closes.

Meanwhile, Barneys New York is celebrating Proenza Schouler's big CFDA win by reissuing the brand's first collection and showcasing it in windows that echo the edgy nature of the garments. A look at all the stores you want to window-shop at here, in the gallery.
