Prada Candy L’eau is a perfume, and in this case Prada Candy L’Eau is also a three-part long-form ad for said fragrance. (Well, “long-form” might be a stretch, as this is three and a half minutes with titles.)
But it is one created by Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola, and one brimming with Anderson’s signature fetishes for composition, style, and color. Lea Seydoux stars with Peter Gadiot and Rodolphe Pauly, who play two guys eager to win the affections of the lady. There’s something of a commercial-pop reference to Truffaut’s Jules and Jim going on here, but nothing wrong with that, especially when Anderson and Coppola make it all so breezy and fun.
For those interested, here are the songs used in the piece:
‘Le temps de la rentrée’ – France Gall
‘L’Idole ‘- Jacques Dutronc
‘Il est 5 heures’ – Jacques Dutronc
