Barney’s Window Displays
Manhattan, New York;
January 19, 2009
Barney’s has brought in the new year/decade with fortune cookie windows. I was a bit confused by these when I first saw them. Actually, I still am. I’m assuming that they are a tie-in with the Chinese New Year but that’s not until February 14. Also, the Chinese don’t associate fortune cookies with the new year but rather red envelopes (lai see). Perhaps Barney’s has Valentine Day windows planned and that’s why they’re doing the Chinese New Year ones now. Anyone?
