In the lead up to their runway show at Paris Fashion Week this Sunday, the elegant French fashion house of Céline have revealed a short mood film to introduce us to their French Historic Monument-classified new headquarters, in the Hôtel Colbert de Torcy mansion at 16 rue Vivienne, Paris.

A playful watercolour paint pattern -- perhaps a hint for the show? -- introduces us to the cool stone columns, grand courtyards and interiors, with sunlight shining through tall windows onto marble. The building, designed by architect Pierre Le Muet in 1635 for Jacques Tubeuf, has been an ambassadorial residency and housed the Paris Stock Exchange.
