Description
Bonwit Teller Valentine's Day themed window display featuring a women's ensemble by Monte Sano & Pruzan. Each window display from this series ties in the heart in a different way. In this window, the mannequin is wearing a jacket and skirt set, hat, gloves and heeled shoes. The mannequin is holding a bow and arrow set and is drawing one of the arrows. In the corner stands a three tone heart target on a white easel, with an arrow already struck in the center. The walls are painted blue and the floor is covered in white confetti. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "A good designer suit is the heart of the matter in fashion... by Monte Sano & Pruzan."
