Mary Rozzi partners with Jerome Rousseau to create a short film that showcases the designer’s Autumn/Winter 2013 collection. The film entitled “Je T’aime” features Jerome’s longtime muse, actress Roxane Mesquida, and is part of an ongoing online project called “We Covet.” The subject of the film expresses the complications of the creator/muse relationship, with Jerome “coveting” Roxane through his exquisite shoes, and Roxane “coveting” Jerome, in a visually decadent video concoction.
“I decided to do something with Jerome in mind – the idea that he covets Roxane, and the dream of her in her world, playing between all her different feelings,” says director Mary Rozzi. “I wanted to channel something emotional, because women are very emotional about their shoes!”
Recently, Mary Rozzi’s photographic work was shown in conjunction with the Helmut Newton exhibit at LA’s Annenberg Space For Photography.
