In the dead sea of fluid mercury
Baby piano cries
Sofia Coppola’s film examining the Chanel Fall-Winter 2021/22 Haute Couture show will be revealed on July 6th at 3pm, Paris time. In the preview released by the fashion house, we were treated to the familiar strains of an interesting choice: 1984’s “Dazzle”, by Siouxsie and the Banshees, the second single from their sixth studio album, Hyæna.
“Quite a lot of this…came from visiting Israel for the first time,” Sioux told Melody Maker in 1992. ’The sea of fluid mercury’ in the lyric, is the Dead Sea.”
Set in the Palais Galliera, actress and model Margaret Qualley (daughter of Andie MacDowell) is highlighted by Neo-Renaissance architecture. Dazzling, indeed.
