The Lady Noir Affair
Film seems to be the new medium for selling luxury goods these days and the latest is a series for Lady Dior handbags 'starring' Marion Cotillard. It begins with Chapter 1, The Lady Noir Affair. I don't really care what it's selling or what the story line is (they're all a bit goofy in their fashion à propos OTT style), I just like the look of it (deja vu from yesterday?). John Galliano co-art directed this 1940s-styled short film noire and of course is responsible for Cotillard's femme fatale look.
When she was going through her bag I couldn't help but think of that maxi-pad commercial from the 90s (I saw it in Canada, maybe it ran in the US too?) where the idea of concealing them in individual packages in your purse was introduced in a (bad) spoof of an international spy film where they were confused with clandestine information and referred to as "zee microfeelm'.
Sorry, John and Marion. I can't help the awful things that are forever etched in my brain.
My reason for posting about this: scenes from around Paris and the interiors are drenched in art deco furnishings. This is how I imagine heaven is decorated:
Thanks to Reanna at Reanna Time for the heads up about the film!
