Cartier holiday ribbon decoration 2019 on Fifth Avenue

Going beyond just decorating the windows, the entire building of Cartier’s Fifth Avenue store is wrapped in a giant bow in the company’s signature red. The shining red ribbon stretches across the entire 52nd street and Fifth Avenue facades while festive garlands outline all of the ground floor windows. The building Cartier is housed in was originally built in 1905 as a gilded age mansion for Morgan Freeman Plant, son of the railroad tycoon Henry B. Plant.
