Ice Castles and Drag Racing Penguins: Barneys Unveils Their Annual Holiday Windows

It’s that time of year—department stores are finally unveiling their Christmas store windows! Barneys New York revealed its new holiday display on Tuesday night, a fun collection of icy sculptures and snowy landscapes entitled Chillin’ Out. Done in partnership with Lexus, artist collective Okamoto Studio, and Utah-based sculptors Ice Castles, the four windows capture the beauty of the frosty season with custom-designed creations and one-of-a-kind installations. To maintain a cold enough atmosphere, the department store had to build 35-foot, in-store ice lockers—a holiday first for the company.
