Best Window Display: Blackmail
(Readers Poll, Architecture & Lodging)
Fashion legend Diana Vreeland once proposed that “elegance is refusal.” We think Blackmail proves the point. Gail Chovan’s storefront holds fast against SoCo’s jumble, stately in a silent movie palette while others splash Technicolor brights. The windows never sacrifice form for flash or nuance for noise. Like pearls with black leather, they are defiantly chic.
