After Dark at the Shakespeare & Co in Paris

By

14th Dec, 2012

Paris is just one of those places in the world where talented people get together and make magical things. Filmmaker Spike Jonze and one of the few handbag designers in the world I actually think is worth raving about these day, Olympia Le-Tan, got together to collaborate on a short film set in one of my favorite places in Paris, the famed bookstore, Shakespeare and Company. When the lights go out at the whimsical bookstore, Le-Tan’s beautiful felt embroidered clutch-bags inspired by first edition book covers come to life in a dramatic but cheeky tale.  “It’s such a beautiful and romantic place; the perfect setting for our story!” says Le-Tan of the antiquarian bookstore and Parisian institution. With their co-director Simon Cahn, the team worked day and night animating the 3,000 pieces of felt that Olympia Le-Tan (what a great name) had cut by hand. So, without further ado, I’d like to present this  stop motion animation, Mourir Auprès de Toi (To die by your side)
