Bloomingdale’s displays this year are made in collaboration with Warner Bros., transforming their windows into a Willy Wonka-themed wonderland. Adults and children alike can pass the display to see a working chocolate fountain, chocolate drops with a Swarovski crystal trail, and a mannequin of Mr. Wonka himself. The outfits are perfectly abstract and silly, embracing the whimsical nature of the Chocolate Factory. The display is inspired by Warner Bros. new adaptation titled “Wonka” in which Timothée Chalamet plays a young Willy Wonka. Fans of the original 1971 Willy Wonka film, don’t fret! The display features many nods to the classic Gene Wilder film, including the façade of a candy store reflecting the sparkly and swirling set from the movie.
A few of the windows also display a Candy Wonderlandscape with wintery scenes made of custom glass artwork by Abby Modell. These windows feature Swarovski-dotted lollipops, handblown chocolate kisses, giant marshmallows, and rock candy sticks.
