Notable Passerby: Salvador Dali at our Lexington Ave. Store in NYC. Our eye-catching window displays have been a source of considerable pride. We expected to turn a few heads when we devised a display at our 48th St. & Lex. flagship in the style of Salvador Dali, but we failed to anticipate the reaction of one notable passerby👨🏻🎨 for the flamboyant artist himself was stopped short on his stroll down Lexington Ave., raising his eyebrows in surprise and stroking his elaborate moustache in appraisal. Fuming, he strode into the shop and, without a word, stepped into the window to rearrange its display details. Stepping down from the window, he declared, “If you’re going to do it, do it right! Whereupon he left the shop and continued his stroll, smiling.✨#NYCmoments only at Caswell-Massey
