Assouline's New 'Icons Collection' Book Explores the Magical Windows of Tiffany & Co.
Hey Siri, play “Moon River.”
It’s 1961 and across a rare, empty view of Fifth Avenue in New York City covered in warm shadows of an early morning, Holly Golightly (played by the iconic Audrey Hepburn) stands gracefully in front of the enduring allure of Tiffany & Co.’s flagship windows. “When I get it, the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s. It calms me down right away, the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there,” she tells.
It is no surprise the awe and wonder of Tiffany & Co.’s imaginative displays attract thousands of visitors of all ages each year. Luxury publisher Assouline encompasses this fanciful spirit in a new Windows at Tiffany & Co. (Icon Edition) title centered around Tiffany & Co.’s magical windows. From the whimsical Christmas and Valentine’s vignettes by legendary designer Gene Moore to the ethereal visions of the current Tiffany & Co. creative team, the book offers an exclusive tour of the imprint’s exquisitely crafted displays.
With an epilogue by Christopher Young, Vice President, Creative Director for Global Creative Visual Merchandising and the Archives for Tiffany & Co., this edition features never-before-seen concept sketches, archival documents, behind-the-scenes imagery, and insights from cultural influencers and fans of the iconic luxury brand. “Astonishing, wonderful and invariably modern: The windows at Tiffany’s Fifth Avenue flagship are the stuff of dreams. Their appeal is universal, inviting passers to vanish through the looking glass and step into a spellbinding world of Tiffany’s unmistakable, emblematic robin’s-egg blue, where even the most elusive of fantasies may come true,” notes Young in a press release.
Priced at $85 USD, Windows at Tiffany & Co. (Icon Edition) can now be purchased from Assouline’s website.
