Biting political satire – in a shoe shop?!

20 Nov

Well – perhaps that’s overstating things slightly? Perhaps. But ShoesieQ had a long hard think before she created her current window display featuring the not-so-sadly departed ex PM of Italy, Sg Silvio Berlusconi. After all, shoe shops are surely meant to be light hearted places where the cut and thrust of European politics has no place whatsoever?

But the idea just wouldn’t go away. And as ShoesieQ didn’t have any better thoughts for her pre Christmas window she thought she’d give it a go.

So here it is. And it’s proved to be by far the most popular display Modish Cambridge has come up with so far! We’ve had so many people doing a double take I’ve lost count, not to mention the Italian and Japanese tourists taking photos. And anyone with any interest in Italy whatsoever seems to have popped their heads around the door with comments ranging from ‘Complimenti’ to a full & frank exchange about the likelihood of his successor, Mario Monti, doing much better than Silvio!

But the most wonderful thing for ShoesieQ in some ways has been that it’s given me the excuse to devote my entire display to my Italian collection of winter shoes & boots, which definitely include some of my very favouites this year. We’re just hoping that the next big news from the Eurozone comes from either Spain, Portugal or Germany as ShoesieQ would love to do a window for them too!

.......e buongiorno Mario!
