Barneys New York found a muse for its holiday windows in the vibrant life of American artist Andy Warhol.
Entitled “Happy Andy Warhol-idays,” four decades of Warhol’s life were depicted in the colorful and detailed window displays, including “Andy the Illustrator (the 1950s),” “Andy the Factory Boy (the 1960s),” “Andy the Social Butterfly (the 1970s)” and “Andy the Compulsive Collector (the 1980s).”
Another scene featuring portraits of Warhol created by children were available for purchase and benefited several social organizations.
Decoupage and hand painting were used in each of the displays, along with assorted images such as photographs, artwork and illustrations, on loan from The Warhol Foundation.
The inspired theme was even carried out in the retailer’s marketing, including bags, gift cards and special Campbell’s soup cans for sale only at Barneys.
