Spooky director David Lynch (“The Elephant Man,” “Blue Velvet,” “Mulholland Drive”) rocked into Shanghai last December, and here’s what he got up to: a 16-minute film for Dior called “Lady Blue Shanghai.” Art directed by designer John Galliano, it stars Marion Cotillard as an appropriately distressed damsel in a perfectly tailored Dior skirt suit. The film begins with our heroine returning to her posh Shanghai hotel, where she quickly discovers that someone has entered her room and left behind a beautiful sapphire Lady Dior quilted handbag sitting smack in the center of the room. It emits smoke and light, so she freaks out and calls security. I’d have flung myself onto the bag and thanked the mysterious Dior gods for their blessing.
Watch the film to discover the story behind the mysterious smoking bag. We promise there’s some paranormal romance to look forward to:
