Le Crocodile in Paris

Paris vitrines (store windows) never fail to delight and inspire.
More often than not, they make me stop in my tracks. And snap photos if my camera is handy.

A few weeks ago I spotted this one, featuring crocodile or alligator leather goods, complete with deceased mascot.
Wow. Would such a window display ever exist in the US?, I wondered.

I was so awestruck I was at a loss for a caption for this photo.

But it clearly needs one, so I welcome your suggestions.

Don't forget, women in France also wear real fur coats much more openly and without guilt (or fear of some animals rights activist throwing red paint on them) so I guess this display isn't so shocking, given where you saw it. There is a razor shop around the corner from me -- yes, a shop specializing in all sorts of shaving equipment! -- and in THEIR window are a stuffed rabbit and a badger, the animals where their fur is used in the soap brushes like my grandfather used to shave with.

Just drive from Texas to New Orleans and you would be surprised what you would see in the windows........ but not with any sense of design!
