4. Saks Fifth Avenue
The holiday windows and giant light display at Saks Fifth Avenue received an upgrade this year, thanks to Elton John. The 2022 light display, which features 60,000 LEDs, will be synchronized to a medley of Elton John’s hits including “Step Into Christmas,” and “Your Song.” John was on hand to perform at the opening celebration.
The star’s flamboyant stage costumes also inspired the window displays, which will move in tandem with the light show. Inside the windows at Saks, onlookers will find classic holiday toys with a futuristic twist. There’s a shiny spinning top with marbles inside, a View-finder with slides, and an iridescent kaleidoscope, among others, all painted in reflective metallic colors.
