For the shooting of her videoclip ‘Ces mots simples’ directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, the French ambassador of the Maison and singer Vanessa Paradis chose a dress from the Métiers d’art Chanel collection of lace embroidered with silk petals, designed by Karl Lagerfeld.
Vanessa embodies the quintessence of French elegance: minute, ethereal, with those details in disorder or slightly “off” (starting from her iconic dents du bonheur) that do nothing but make it even more fascinating and sensual.
Ces mots simples, these simple words to say that.. She wore a pale pink lace dress embroidered with pink, off-white and green silk petals inspired from the look 71 from the Chanel Mètiers d’art Paris in Rome 2015/16 collection.Chanel make-up: Skincare hydra beauty micro crème, complexion Les Beiges teint belle mine naturelle 20, on the cheek création exclusive Le Lion De Chanel noir, on the eyebrows Le Crayon Sourcils blond clair, on the lips Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme modern.
In the video, Vanessa Paradis appears to us as a hieratic figure, out of time, swinging on a rope swing with her head literally in the air and her feet touching the water.
The sources arrives after five years of musical silence, the most enigmatic chanteuse of France returns with a record that is pure ode to romanticism.
The new album by Vanessa Paradis, talks about essential things: beauty, love, dreams.
Les sources is a solar disk but not like summer, rather like the arrival of spring, at the exact moment when we feel that the air changes and is lighter on the skin.
The title of the CD, Ces mots simples, almost programmatically, exposes the need to go to the sources, the origins, the source of what catalyzes the emotions in humans, making us feel simply alive.
