Lost in Translation (2003)

lostintranslation_bornunicornThere are two Dr. Hauschka products in Charlotte and John’s hotel bedroom.

The first can be seen on a table while John is packing his camera and lenses for work. It’s a tube, so it could contain many different creams. I like thinking it’s the rose day cream, which I’ve used for many years and still love.



The second appears on Charlotte’s bedside table: it’s a smaller tube, and I’m pretty sure it contains the daily hydrating eye cream.On the same spot there’s another product which looks familiar: it looks like the shea butter tin box by L’Occitane. This may be a long shot, though.

New York Stories: Life Without Zoe (1989)


Zoe Valdes (Heather McComb) keeps a giant bottle of Chanel no. 5 perfume on her desk.

Bonus read: an overview of the Chanel accessories and costume jewellery seen in the film. In the late 1980s Sofia Coppola wasn’t a director yet, but she worked on this film: she curated the costume and wardrobe department, wrote the screenplay with her father and designed the main titles.
