P1010506Ahh the sweet taste of a (some) glass (es) wine. Objects purring for any kind of affection.

Lakmé,s les liens en fluers

, Whispers softly in the background. My eyes linger lovingly, on something that has not the slightest meaning, to anyone except, maybe three other people. Still I am seduced in to thinking about ways of obtaining said, thing. One job, which job, begging on the Goethe strasse. Being very nice to the Store Owner, how nice, hope not really nice. Then again it is I who  wants. They say if you have to ask you cant afford it. Right, however I like to know what I am convincing myself that it is only 300euros. which would be OK if it were  say a  television, and not ……..a, belt. Listen I have all ready seen the outfits that can go with it, It will never go out of style, I know I`m sounding desperate, because sitting in a window in Amsterdam is starting to look appealing. Away I walk  in the style of Lot`s wife. Leider zu teuer, aber……….

decoration

CCF14072008_00008Well I don’t do it that much, because I am always disappointed. here I will point out just a few facts. One, the whole purpose of a window, is simply to attract customers.therefore one would assume that with above information as a given, there should be something about the display that would attract some kind of attention.However one gets the feeling or rather I do that, either a mathematician has made the presentation, or the people that are in charge are still in school trying to impress their teacher. now if the latter were true, the best thing to do would be to send said teacher on a long vacation, long meaning walking vacation, like to Madagascar, thus eliminating any possibility of said person coming back before the completion of your education. Furthermore if any of you bothered to look, have you noticed that most times when suits are decorated they look like someone that is stuffed for burial. Do you really want to look like that? Or how about when the arms are placed in such a way that the look ends up being like a Woolworth’s type shop, in the time of the DDR. If you are a shop owner why would you buy a mannequin with TEETH? Or put a wig on them that if it had a life of its own,would remove it´s self off the head and deposit it´s self in the garbage can.


fashion windows0032With saying this I have to add especially here in Frankfurt, that owners of the most expensive shops seem to think that just because the clothes cost a lot, that is a decoration by its self. I have news for you. Not working. How about stop being such cheap bastards and pay the decorator.And to those other people that believe more is more why don’t you just stuff some mannequins in the window, because I guess 20 is just not enough for a window that is 20 feet by 20 feet. Those mannequins with out arms and legs? The 80´s and 90´s are over, that creativity went out the door, when Micheal Jackson was still Black, and when Linda Evangelista got out of bed, her bank balance just made a continuous chinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng. so just to put this point into perspective I decided to just post some of the best, in frankfurt.
