Watch: Official Trailer for 'Fresh Dressed' Doc on Hip Hop Fashion
"Being fresh is more important than having money!" Samuel Goldwyn Films & StyleHaul have released this official trailer for Fresh Dressed, a documentary from this year's Sundance Film Festival looking back at the history of hip hop/urban fashion. The documentary features lots of classic footage, as well as interviews and discussions with style insiders like Pharrell Williams, Damon Dash, Karl Kani, Kanye West, Nas Jones, Sean Combs and plenty others. It provides a look at what it means to be fresh, and why style was (and is) so important to today's culture. This doc seems like it has a much more engaging, inspiring, and informative story than just "here is what people wore then" and I'm curious to check it out sometime. Enjoy!
"A fascinating, fun-to-watch chronicle of hip-hop, urban fashion, and the hustle that brought oversized pants and graffiti-drenched jackets from Orchard Street to high fashion's catwalks and Middle America shopping malls. Reaching deep to Southern plantation culture, the black church, and Little Richard, director Sacha Jenkins' music-drenched history draws from a rich mix of archival materials and in-depth interviews with rappers, designers, and other industry insiders, such as Pharrell Williams, Damon Dash, Karl Kani, Kanye West, Nas Jones, and Andre Leon Talley." Fresh Dressed is directed by Sacha Jenkins, and first premiered at Sundance 2015. Samuel Goldwyn will open Fresh Dressed in theaters + VOD on June 26th.
