Architectur of Chanel
This TV commercial from 1979 makes my heart beat faster, it's so sexy. The plane's shadow and the lanky man, both making their ways between the woman's legs, are hardly subtle. But in an age when most TV ads featured talking heads and product shots, this short film does nothing but evoke a mood of luxury and desire - a quick visual poem on aspiration. A novel and, ultimately, very influential approach. Directed by none other than Ridley Scott (Alien, Bladerunner).
