Live From New York, It’s The Barneys Holiday Window Display

Now here’s a holiday window display we can get behind.

After reliving the 1960′s last year with his “Peace & Love: Have a Hippie Holiday” theme, Barneys New York’s creative director Simon Doonan has cooked up a plan to commemorate timeless New York City-based sketch comedy show “Saturday Night Live” and its 35th anniversary in the department store’s holiday windows this year.

We got a peek at some of Doonan’s sketches of the windows, which will debut on November 19. The windows will include tributes to famous “SNL” sketches like the Coneheads, Chris Kattan‘s Mango and Tina Fey as Sarah Palin.

“From Roseanne Roseannadanna to The Church Lady to Weekend Update there is an unlimited amount of brilliant material,” Doonan said. “I have always wanted to pay tribute to the genius heritage of ‘SNL.’”

Even “SNL” producer Lorne Michaels agrees the windows will be exciting. “The Barneys Holiday windows are a great New York tradition and I am very excited that ‘SNL’ is going to be the focus of this year’s celebration,” he said.
