There is no better way to celebrate a 10-year-old creative partnership between a world leading haute-couture, fragrance brand and the most awarded creative production studio than creating a new film with celebrated talent in front and behind the camera.
Coco Chanel created N°5 in 1921, a fragrance like no other. Nearly a century later the recognizable and unforgettable scent remains aligned to the strict and original design aesthetic of elegant couture. N°5 is one of the most renowned fragrances in the world and has been the biggest selling fragrance in France until 2011! This year, it is celebrating the Academy and Cesar award-winning actress, singer and song-writer Marion Cotillard to represent freedom, modernity and accomplishment as its latest brand ambassador.
For this movie, Marion Cotillard has been paired with Jeremie Belingard, former Principal Dancer of Opera de Paris, production agency 75 and Gloden Globe winning director Johan Renck, who has collaborated with Mikros MPC on over a dozen projects during the past ten years.
The film follows a dreamlike trip to the moon represented by joyful and energetic choreography which celebrates the ‘joie de vivre’ of Chanel’s muse as she joins forces with her partner to lead the dance from Paris to the moon in a story embodying freedom.
