At night they step out in haughty pavanes, seeming like the promise of a long-awaited dawn. With this film, Paris greets us in an epic, fantastical road movie. The camera moves around with fluid skill, parading images of a timelessly modern fashion before our eyes. Every dress, every silhouette captured by the camera is an ardent, lucid exaltation of women’s beauty and their mesmerising femininity. Far from all the darkness and confusion, the ineffable magic of Couture weaves its ever-more concentrated spell, restoring belief in every kind of enchantment.
