We are often inspired by fashion in designing our lighting collections, so it makes perfect sense to pair beautiful lighting with an upscale women’s specialty store like Henri Bendel.

Crystorama, one of the nation’s leading providers of decorative lighting, has teamed up with Swarovski to provide 16 chandeliers for the famed Henri Bendel holiday window display at the Fifth Avenue flagship store. This year’s display, dubbed the “Hirschfeld Spectacular,” honors the late Al Hirschfeld, an American caricaturist best known for his black and white portraits of celebrities and Broadway stars.
In conjunction with the installation, Crystorama and retailer Capitol Lighting/1800Lighting.com are hosting a holiday sweepstakes for a Crystorama chandelier featuring Swarovski Elements.
“We couldn’t be more flattered to be asked to be part of this iconic installation, and we’re excited that our fans will get a chance to bring a piece of the Hirschfeld Spectacular into their own home through our sweepstakes with Capitol Lighting,” said Brad Kleinberg, president of Crystorama.
Hirschfeld Spectacular at Henri Bendel
The main window of the Henri Bendel flagship store has been transformed into the formal dining room of a classic New York townhouse in the midst of a holiday party. The celebrated party guests—all Al Hirschfeld’s line drawings translated into three-dimensions—include: Carol Channing, Whoopi Goldberg, Sarah Jessica Parker, Liza Minnelli, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Bernadette Peters, and Woody Allen. At the center of the window hangs a large gold-plated Crystorama chandelier sparkling with Swarovski Elements.
The centerpiece of the atrium is Henri Bendel’s iconic two-story tree, covered in malachite. Atop the tree is Al Hirschfeld’s Charlie Chaplin, also sculpted in three dimensions, looking down at all who enter the store. Fifteen Crystorama chandeliers with Swarovski Elements adorn the tree’s many branches.
“We are often inspired by fashion in designing our lighting collections, so it makes perfect sense to pair beautiful lighting with an upscale women’s specialty store like Henri Bendel,” Kleinberg said.
The display will be up through January 2, 2014 and can be seen at the Henri Bendel flagship store located at 712 5th Ave, New York, N.Y. 10019.
