Marion Cotillard has been asked by Dior to design her own handbag. The French actress can be seen in this new behind-the-scenes video showing how the new bag – named the 360 Degree Bag – is coming along.
Naturally, it’s in French, but the subtitles tell us that Cotillard will be putting her own personal spin on the Lady Dior arm candy.
She explains in the three-minute video that she is ‘torn between a rock and roll type or something extremely simple’.
She goes on to say that she would like to put a ‘strong Dior symbol on it’, and that she ‘adores houndstooth’, quilting, knots and a big letter ‘O’.
The short documentary also shows Cotillard getting inspiration from trees, a number of catwalk shows and music.
‘It was, of course, completely natural that Marion Cotillard would go on to design her own bag, her personal Lady Dior, as modern as it is timeless’
A statement on Dior’s website read: ‘She has been the face of the Lady Dior bag since 2008, the epitome of a sophisticated and vibrant woman.
‘It was, of course, completely natural that Marion Cotillard would go on to design her own bag, her personal Lady Dior, as modern as it is timeless.’
The 37-year-old is loyal to Christian’s company by rarely being pictured wearing any other designer at red carpet events.
I love her! I think she’s so beautiful and talented!
