Yesterday’s launch event shadowed several of the locations featured in the ad campaign, including the Pont des Arts, a rooftop party venue and the city’s picturesque (and recently renamed) Marché aux Fleurs Reine Elizabeth II, on Place Louis Lépine. Transport took the form of vintage convertible Citroen 2CVs and a boat along the River Seine.

“We wanted to tell a new story about Paris and romance,” explained Coty Prestige Group Vice President Marketing Balenciaga, Chloé and Roberto Cavalli Caroline Javoy, of the ad campaign. “We also wanted to show the ‘insider’ side of Paris, and where real Parisians go.” 

The TV ad was directed by Mélanie Laurent, and features music performed by Vanessa Paradis. The fragrance face is French actress Clémence Poésy, one of a trio who fronted the signature Chloé Eau de Parfum, launched in 2008.

We chose Clémence because she perfectly embodies the Chloé brand,” Javoy noted. “She is natural, graceful, modern and spirited.” She concluded: “As with everything the Chloé brand does, this new fragrance is a story of women, by women, for women.”

+ Pictures from the event along with Clémence discribing being invited to front the campagin as ‘the perfect christmas gift’ in the source.

Face of the firm, the actress also lends a hand in a capsule collection mixing boheme influences along with timeless pieces. This sweet style and cloakroom to the modern-times artist includes painter’s smock blouses, a coat in wool velvet, a little black collared dress in white muslin… To discover in September on Pablo.fr

“I’ve always been fascinated by Lee Miller. She is one of my heroes and I love Francesca Woodman. Sometimes I can just stare at the pattern in her pictures all day or the shape of one of her shirts. She created the most amazing atmospheres. I also adore Niki de Saint Phalle. I think she is a very elegant woman, and I think I would lie if I didn’t say Patti Smith and Jane Birkin were also sources of inspiration for me.”- Clémence Poésy

“I wanted to draw and do costumes. I was prepared to train for that, but I needed something to do on my time off from high school, so I called an agent without telling anyone and started working with her.”
Clémence Poésy

Poésy’s bob, it turns out, is the handiwork of the Paris-based, superstylist David Mallettwhose charming hôtel particulier salon in the 2nd Arrondissement is a favorite escape of the city’s sought-after actresses, fashion publicists, and designers.  

“Clémence wanted a dramatic change, something visible. It was an impulse. We decided to do it in three seconds,” says Mallett, who cut it into something “soft around the edges, not too neat, not too classic. The inspiration was Debbie Harry.”  After he’d finished cutting, he sent her to in-house colorist Rémy Faure, who lightened it to what Mallett calls “a very, very pale tone of honey with a bit of shadow at the roots. Parisian girls like for their color to look a little bit faded.”   


I love Paris: its beauty, its history; through the directors of La Nouvelle Vague that came out of the studio to film in the heart of the city. I think of À bout de souffle of Godard, where the characters, and Paris itself, escape the monotony of everyday life and are tinged with a refreshing unpredictability. I think of this scene in Jules et Jim by Truffaut, with Jeanne Moreau running in the bridge of Bir-Hakeim. I will never forget the images of Paris in Hôtel du Nord, of Marcel Carné… And I re-watch regularly Dans Paris by Chrstophe Honoré, which evoques the duality of the city: this perpetual swing between a heavy atmosphere and gaiety… I also hear Paris in the smoky voice of Gainsbourg, in the texts that have unveiled the flesh of the city, its irreverent sensuality. - Clémence Poésy
