Escapade: A Parisian Love Affair

Cours Florent-trained Decroix and fellow model and actor Talbourdet Napoleone play the film’s cat-and-mouse lovers, meeting up across three iconic—yet secret—Parisian locations that feature interiors by the luxurious Pierre Frey. Founded in 1935, Pierre Frey’s timeless patterns and fabrics reflect the traditions of Parisian history and set the mood of the film’s dreamlike atmosphere with an amorous piano-led score by Mattias Mimoun.

“Pierre Frey knows better than anyone what colors and patterns suit this city, and creating a picture filled with lots of color emphasizes the feeling of love,” says Schmeltz, who has made award-winning music videos for Justice, Chromeo and The Streets with his longtime collaborator, Surface2air’s Jeremie Rozan.
