NEW YORK — The Halloween spirit has bitten designers and retailers, and the proof is all over Gotham City. “Halloween is a high-holy holiday for us,” said Patricia Field, “so our windows have to be eye-catching, and we dare to be different.” This year, store windows around town are decked out with monsters, witches, jack-o’-lanterns and gore, making the holiday just as stylish as it is spooky. Apparently, though, not spooky enough for some: “I think our windows are really scary, but I live by the Bleecker Street stores, so at night I stand outside and ask the kids if they’re scared, and they tell me, ‘No,'” said Robert Duffy, president of Marc Jacobs. He refused to divulge his costume for tonight, but admitted, “I’m going to be one part of a two-part costume — and it’s not the ass-end of a horse, I can promise you that.” — Carter Love
