A magical winter wonderland has descended upon New York courtesy of Van Cleef & Arpels. The maison’s Fifth Avenue boutique recently unveiled an enchanting, snowy series of Douglas Little-designed windows for the holiday season. With the display, passersby are drawn through the French fairy tale of Peau d’Âne, chapter by chapter. The story — involving a princess, her fairy godmother, an escape into the forest, and a chance encounter with an unshakeable prince — also inspired Van Cleef & Arpels’s latest high jewelry collection, the aptly named Peau d’Âne, which marks its US debut with the windows.
