French actress Lea Seydoux stars in Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola's New Wave-inspired promos for Prada's Candy L'eau
Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola's collaboration with Prada for the promotion of the brand's new fragrance Candy L'eau will be accompanied by a series of short episodes featuring Lea Seydoux. The mini film sees Seydoux channeling Jeanne Moreau and draws inspiration from French New Wave cinema of the '60s.
Seydoux explains the story to the Telegraph:
It was Miuccia [Prada]'s choice to work with Wes Anderson on this film, which references [François Truffaut's 1962 film] Jules et Jim . I play a girl caught in a threesome between two boys called Julius and Jim. Wes is extremely precise. The film is a comedy, but he doesn't like you to play at comedy. You have to keep things very straight and very clean. It's just the scene that is comic, not you.
