As promised, the results of our Tuesday stroll down 5th avenue, peeking inside all the windows and seeing what we could see. Not all stores are represented in this set; frankly, we found many of the displays tired and staid. Here’s a few things that caught our eye, in a magic Flickr gallery.

The strongest showing was by Saks Fifth Avenue who definitely lead the pack in style and innovation. Their windows are in a cinematic aspect ratio and they exploit their bold-face headline window space with grace and aplomb. The result has a breath of mothball and a deprecating cuteness but at least it tells a bit of a story. A story of, apparently, cupcakes and cleaning solution, but a story nonetheless.
