spike jonze + olympia le-tan = mourir auprès de toi!

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.
