Marion Cotillard is back for the latest installment of the Lady Dior campaign titled Lady Blue. For this fourth chapter, Cotillard has been taken to Shanghai.
The short film follows a teaser clip that was released a few weeks ago, where Marion Cotillard, dressed in black, recites a poem penned by David Lynch, and dances with her blue Lady Dior bag.
Directed by David Lynch, the short film is a love story full of mystery. “It’s about memory, […] And then, when you remember, it’s different” Lynch said.
The Lady Blue film is a clip featuring Marion Cotillard, a Shanghai hotel corridor, and the blue Lady Dior bag, which contains a blue rose that triggers memories of a lost love with whom she shared kisses near the city’s Pearl Tower.
Word has it that he was given free reign for the movie apart from 3 things: the video would have to have the Dior bag, Old Shanghai and the Pearl Tower in it.
Galliano said of the 12-minute film: “Marion is reciting a poem that [David Lynch] wrote, and was inspired by the Pearl Tower itself.
The words and building fuse in the picture he paints on-screen. Shanghai is such a vibrant and inspiring city.”
Steven Klein shot the campaign which depicts the actress being pulled back by a spy against the impressive Shanghai skyline.
