Baz Luhrmann, Catherine Martin, and Dennis Freedman are responsible for this year’s Barney’s Madison Avenue holiday windows 2014. The windows are an otherworldly sensory experience, a stunning wonderland of woodland creatures, ice dancers, naughty elves, larger-than-life sets, and beats from melodic obsession of the moment, Pentatonix.

The windows also feature artists collaborations with Chris Cole and Anthony Howe.

Barney’s New York Christmas Windows 2014 – LOVE
A magical corner of Central Park is the mythical setting for the first window, which depicts a forest of 9-foot chromed mushrooms in a rainbow of colors. Elphresh the elf contorts and dances in and around his 14-foot-wide gold and bejeweled boom box, in pursuit of his impossible love, Elfemeral.

Barney’s New York Christmas Windows 2014 – BEAUTY
The Spirits of the Snow star in this window, realized by Washington-based artist Anthony Howe and voiced by Pentatonix. These handmade kinetic sculptures, previously only seen as outdoor wind machines, come to life within the window—the first time Howe’s work has been shown in an interior space. The movement of these spirited characters is entirely generated by wind machines, which sets them into mesmerizing motion.

Artist and sculptor Chris Cole has created an 8-foot-tall, 6-foot-wide steampunk talking owl which gravely speaks his words of wisdom, scored to Pentatonix’s version of Madonna’s “Holiday.”
