we’ve just stumbled upon this brilliant animated film by one of our favorite film makers, Spike Jonze, in collaboration with french filmmaker Simon Cahn and fashion designer Olympia Le-Tan. together they have crafted a short story inspired by Olympia’s embroidered clutch-bag collection called Mourir Auprès de Toi. the film is based around the love story of a clumsy skeleton and his flame-haired amour played out amidst Le-Tan’s illustrations of classic first-edition book covers. shot inside one of paris’ most iconic bookstores, shakespeare & co., the film features around 3,000 pieces of hand-cut felt pieces created by the burgeoning designer. check out the film below, courtesy of nowness (twitter @nowness) and read their interview with Spike about the project here.
