Hélène, the ambitious director of the prestigious Ricosi fashion house, has no time for a personal life. She faces a deadline for the new collection just when the company’s designer and diva-in-chief Alicia Ricosi (Fanny Ardant) has fallen out of love – a condition that never fails to produce a creative slump. To avoid the imminent wrath of her neurotic CEO, Hélène and her staff make herculean efforts to find Alicia the new muse she needs to get her creative juices flowing again. Fate intervenes when Alicia unexpectedly cracks for Julien, a seemingly unsophisticated garden designer played by Eric Elmosnino (GAINSBOURG, COLCOA 2012) whom Hélène has unfortunately just fired. To gain Julien’s cooperation and save the collection, Hélène will need to use all her powers of persuasion, even the ones she’s forgotten she had.
