I came across this extraordinary window at Mulberry, here in London the other day. I haven't seen such fun windows in ages. In fact who was it that did the window which had rats wearing jewellery on Saville Row many years ago? (I think it was Simon Doonan?) Anyway, the Mulberry windows consist here of shiny gloss black trees with hundreds of the beetle-like creatures (possibly Stag Beetles?) crawling all around. Such a simple idea, yet has fantastic impact. Merchandise is strategically placed on the torn (burnt?) stumps of the branches with one shoe in the smaller window placed as if the figure who would have been there has been consumed.
I think, perhaps, I would have put a few more on the floor of the main window, even filled the whole floor to create a writhing mass and possibly a whole variety of sizes. But anyway, this is a great idea and thank you Mulberry for the great visual.
