Designed by Paul Olszewski, the six windows tell the story of a magical ship making a trip to the North Pole. The theme is inspired by the “Make-A-Wish” foundation, and features the store’s celebrity ornament collection. “You see this character on a Christmas tree kind of rocket ship that launches and goes to the North Star and decorates the tree. So all the other windows tell you what’s happening inside the ship, where they’re collecting wishes and their essences,” said the designer to the New York Daily News.
