Preview: 'Coco Chanel' Movie Trailer

(French Poster from IMDB.com (released by Warner Bros. France)

I was browsing the Yahoo France website and I saw the movie trailer for "COCO AVANT CHANEL" ("COCO BEFORE CHANEL" in English).

Here's Audrey Tautou as the legendary Coco Chanel. (Picture source: www.screenrush.co.uk)



This movie from Warner Bros. France takes place during her childhood and her early adulthood.

...so far, there are no subtitles for this trailer...so to those who don't understand French, just appreciate the visual aspects...

Poster for International Release (only a few release around Europe is known for now)

France and Belgium will release the movie on 22nd of April.

One comment: The story looks promising though I hope they will also show more fashion in the film.

Along the window display at Hermès (in Singapore), the boutique's in house designer, Julian Lee uses series of stationary utensils (tape, pencils, paper clips, memo-pad...you get the drift...) on a huge and normal scale next to their new collection...
On Sunday, Han Suying from 'The New Paper (one of the newspapers published in Singapore)' reported about the window display.

By the way, Alessia, congrats on your show! Really liked the garments you produced (from what I saw on the video!).

A little more on the designer next time )of some of her other works as I'm working on a project which has almost taken a bit of my time (also more on that project in the future...).

Trust me, I'm not a huge fan of Alexander McQueen and I understand that this news of the collaboration is probably getting too much...

Anyway, just posting the commercial I encountered.
