The Holiday season is here, and this NY retailer wants to spread love and kindness in these uncertain times. WGSN Global News Editor Nigel Taylor reports
Luxury retailer Barneys New York has bought together a collection of celebrated artists to interpret its themed ‘Love Peace Joy’ Holiday 2016 windows project that “continues to bring people together”.
The artists, who represent a wide range of styles and ideals, include visual and performance artist Nick Cave, contemporary artist Rob Pruitt, artist collective Studio Job, mixed media artist Ebony G Patterson, and Trey Parker and Matt Stone of Comedy Central’s South Park.
Products from Studio Job and Nick Cave will also be available starting November 17, with items ranging from custom lollipops for $18, to silk scarves for $240, and a bronzed stamp mirror for $5,595.
The project also marks the fourth year that global visual and audio technologies company Christie has collaborated on the Barneys New York holiday window displays, helping to actualise the creative concepts and bring the windows to life with advanced visual technology.

To further celebrate the Love Peace Joy Project, Barneys New York will feature dedicated editorial content on its life and style editorial site TheWindows, including exclusive interviews with artists, behind-the-scenes videos detailing the making of the window displays, as well as other content highlighting this holiday project.
To further spread Love, Peace, and Joy, the retailer’s newly launched Barneys New York Foundation is debuting the #LovePeaceJoyProject, a crowdsourced social campaign to encourage audiences to share in the seasonal festivities while supporting charitable causes.
