Second prize goes to Barneys New York. Not only did the window display characteristically understated elegance, it is also interactive. Admirers of the display can leave comments on Instagram hashtagging Barneys for a chance to win some really swank loot. A press representative said Barneys doesn’t follow a theme for window displays, but rather the department store wants the windows to present social messages.
