You might not expect to see a mannequin at CB2, the housewares store that is a division of Crate and Barrel. But doing the unexpected in your window is what makes passerby go “wow” and want to come inside.

When CB2 Visual Merchandiser Jen Smith called to say they wanted to buy a distressed mannequin from our boneyard, I thought she was doing a Halloween themed display. Instead they were doing a display to highlight various mirrors that the store sells.
Instead of putting clothing on the mannequin, they just covered her “ladyparts” with the strategic use of black paper. Interesting concept – what do you think?
