Ok, I’m in trouble with the cinema. You know, I’m fascinated by all about movies, their “making of “, the “off-stage” work behind every scene of a flick. But I can’t really get inspired by films right now, because when I usually see teasers on TV, on Youtube, at movie theatres, I’m always quite disappointed with the new “coming soon” movies, because they don’t make me feel something special when I watch them. But surfing the net I found this short by creative director of Chanel Karl Lagerfeld who celebrates the invention of Coco’s jacket style. That’s not the most beautiful short ever, but soundtrack CC The World written and composed by Pharrell Williams, who also plays the bellboy who Coco got inspired by for the invention of her iconic jacket, it’s so odd and beautiful. In fact it mashes up classical music with classical and modern ballet. An unconventional short, splitted in two parts, one in 1954 when Chanel went to Austria and spotted the hotel elevator hand who became her muse; one in the 20th century, reminding the old kingdom of Sissi and her husband (played by topmodel Cara Delevingne and Pharrell). The role of Coco Chanel is played by the great Geraldine Chaplin (she seems to be the real Coco!!).
I think it’s a good and unique mix of styles, history, times, and actors (a top model, a singer and an actress together!). Enjoy the making of and the short!
