Kleinfeld Windows: A Lasting Impression

Posted By Guest Blogger:Kleinfeld Unveiled
January 24, 2014

We’re so excited to unveil our lasted window, the first for 2014. Kleinfeld Creative Director, Jacques Vigneault, was inspired by designer Mark Zunino’s Spring 2014 collection. What left a lasting impression, on Jacques, were the long Cathedral trains on featured in several of his dresses.


The gowns in the window have 108" long trains (that's equivalent 22 iPhones!). To highlight and accentuate the length of the trains, the windows are divided into two rooms, and as the bride is walking in the other room, the train is still leaving ‘A Lasting Impression’ in the second room. To get an idea of what kind of impression these dresses leave, it would take the average person NINE steps to walk passed these dresses. 


Window One:

You’re able to see the bride just above eye level walking through the rooms.

Window Two:

The viewer is seeing a plane-view of the scene with the bride walking away with her train following behind her.

Accent elements:

You may have noticed, the use of fox and bird imagery. This relates to the Aesop fable, The Fox and the Crow…


A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of cheese in its beak and settle on a branch of a tree.

     "That's for me, as I am a Fox," said Master Reynard, and he walked up to the foot of the tree.

     "Good day, Mistress Crow," he cried. "How well you are looking today: how glossy your feathers; how bright your eye. I feel sure your voice must surpass that of other birds, just as your figure does; let me hear but one song from you that I may greet you as the Queen of Birds."

     The Crow lifted up her head and began to caw her best, but the moment she opened her mouth the piece of cheese fell to the ground, only to be snapped up by Master Fox.


     "That will do," said he. "That was all I wanted. In exchange for your cheese I will give you a piece of advice for the future: "Do not trust flatterers."


This is a story of flattery and deception – which translates to both windows, with the beauty of the gowns, and the trickery of the view of the window.
