The inspiration for the window display comes from the beginning of the New Year, and the ambiguity that comes with it. Whether it be the celebratory night itself (which is where the etched statements like “A Flash” and “A Kiss” derive from), or later on, in the beginning months. All of us are uncertain about the future, so the thought was to turn the window into a crystal ball/fortune teller.
