Homage to Tony Duquette




There has been a lot of buzz lately about the Tony Duquette-themed holiday windows at Bergdorf's (well deserved buzz, I might add). Well, a reader was kind enough to send me images of another Duquette inspired window display, this time at Downtown in Los Angeles. This exuberant homage to Duquette includes all sorts of fantastical and whimsical touches, not the least being "coral" made from red pipe cleaners (now why didn't I think of that?)! Created by Downtown partner David Serrano, this tribute truly captures the spirit of Duquette.

    I think Tony Duquette would have thoroughly approved of pipe-cleaner coral! Bravo!

  4. I really like the whole display, but it was the pipe cleaner coral that really did it for me!

  5. How imaginitive! Thanks for sharing. I'm still waiting (patiently) for my copy of the book to arrive. I think amazon must be inundated with orders, they've pushed back the delivery date twice already!

  7. Peak: Yesterday I was listening to Sirius 112, Martha Stewart Living Radio. Chief Creative Officer Gael Towey was interviewing the designers of Bergdorf's fabulous Tony Duquette inspired windows. It was a very high tribute to Duquette.
