NEW YORK — Delta has touched down in Henri Bendel's Fifth Avenue store with airport-inspired window displays, in-store activities and special events designed to show off the airline's international expansion.
"Delta Jet-Set Summer" runs through June 26 and includes a main-floor Delta-brand boutique packed with Delta apparel by JunkFood Clothing. Passersby are getting a glimpse of what's inside by the fake Delta ticket counter signs in the store windows. "Grey's Anatomy" star Justin Chambers, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Chloë Sevigny will headline tonight's kickoff party at the store.
Henri Bendel shoppers will have the chance to win a pair of round-trip tickets to Delta's new destinations, to check out images of the airline's newest destinations and sample services. They will also learn about must-haves for summer travelers and can pick up shopping passports, have them stamped in various departments and then redeem them for a gift bag.
Teril Turner, director of marketing for Henri Bendel, noted that the shopping passport makes the collaboration more of an experience for consumers. "It's a fun escapist moment for the summer."
Kiosks Modelco's beauty team will offer jet-set travel tips next week; Dany Levy will read from her book, "Daily Candy A-Z," on June 22, and refreshments inspired by Delta's new healthy in-flight menu and its mini Mile High Mojitos will be served when "Today" show correspondent Peter Greenberg signs copies of his new book, "The Travelers Diet: Eating Right and Staying Fit on the Road," on June 26. In total, 13 events are planned during Delta's two-week run.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
