Saks Fifth Avenue transformed its flagship into The Winter Palace for Holiday season, with the unveiling of its historic holiday windows as well as the premiere of a new theatrical light show, with three-dimensional elements, to the front facade of the iconic store. The department store has been transformed into a royal spectacle of more than 225,000 dancing lights as well as 225,200 crystals. This theatrical light show took over 10,000 hours to produce.
As part of its annual tradition, Saks offers imaginative designs for its holiday windows, this year showing the Earth’s great wonders transformed into wintery fantasies. Whether it’s the Empress of China sliding alongside her Great Wintery Wall, the mighty Gladiatrix battling above her Ice-Cold Colosseum, or an Icy Mermaid marveling at the beauty found within the frozen Great Brrrier Reef, each window depicts a winter marvel with exotic fashion to match.
This season, Saks Fifth Avenue stores nationwide will become a Winter Palace. The holiday theme will trickle into each department with icy chandeliers, frosted decor, and wintry, exotic fashion. Additionally, Saks Fifth Avenue will launch Gifts of Wonder, its unique holiday gifting assortment, within each Winter Palace. Customers may view and shop Saks’ Gifts of Wonder in-store as well as within the new, and first, Holiday Magalog on saks.com.
