Back for her 5th, 9th, 125th campaign (frankly, I lost count) for the French house of Dior is Marion Cotillard, who has for many seasons embodied the spirit of the luxury label’s most iconic of handbags, the elegant and poised Lady Dior. And in her latest campaign for Cruise 2015, she is seen roaming the streets of Paris by night, taking a nocturnal stroll on the city’s famed Pont Alexandre III, a bridge that pans the Seine.
And while my elders will give you a million reasons on why you shouldn’t be running around in the middle of the night with bags that glimmer ever so invitingly in the moonlight, that is precisely the premise of this campaign, especially with the Lady Dior bags from the Cruise 2015 collection all adorned in the most metallic of finishes, from a beautifully quilted lambskin rendition in stunning copper (the colour, not the metal) to another in distressed silver (again the colour, not the metal). There’s even a gorgeous ‘floral’ one in an abstract print in just the right amount of colours that’s no less attractive as well.
I will hopefully be posting more on this collection at a later date, with more bags from the Cruise 2015 collection along with SLGs and other fine accessories, and their prices in SGD. For now, just enjoy the campaign, but remember. Unless you’re Ms Cotillard, don’t be wandering on bridges in the middle of the night.
