On November 17th, Henri Bendel is celebrating their 20-year collaboration with Izak by launching an in-store retrospective of his work. His artwork will not only be used to transform the entire store, but will be featured in the eagerly-anticipated Holiday Windows.
“Henri Bendel has always been known for its playful fashion illustrations,” said Henri Bendel Creative Director Pina Ferlisi. “Millions of tourists and New Yorkers alike walk by our windows during the holiday season. This year, we designed a window featuring illustrations by our longtime collaborator, Izak Zenou. We wanted the store to have a story book feel and for our customers to discover treasures and romantic displays of beautiful items throughout our store. “
“I am thrilled to be a part of the Henri Bendel holiday window display,” said illustrator Izak Zenou. “The excitement comes, really, from the incredibly fortunate journey of illustrating for Henri Bendel. This has been an amazing playground for me as a fashion illustrator. I’m grateful and excited every time I illustrate for the brand.”
