Sculpture and The Animals of Paris

It's monkey busine$$ in the Rive Gauche Hermes display windows.
We were hurrying by, but stopped in our tracks to look and take these photos.

It was total chaos.

Animals cavorting in the boudoir and drawing room. Not just any animals, anatomically correct orangutangs of both genders. Mon Dieu!

 What the hell is going on? Who's idea was this?
Leila Menchari is the designer. Read more about this window here, and Leila's work here and here.


The windows are very funny, very detailed, with vignettes within vignettes.
The party was out of control, you had to be there........ and for once, I was.
