The film – directed in one continuous shot by Mau Morgó and scored with BFRND’s rework of Édith Piaf’s “Sous le Ciel de Paris” – lenses the bustling façade of 10 avenue George V. This address, which Cristóbal Balenciaga referred to as “Le Dix,” is where the maison’s Parisian legacy both began in 1937 and continues to be written today. The essentiality of the place – and a sense of applying the house’s codes into the patterns of the quotidian – fueled the concept.
