Fresh Dressed Documentary Trailer

"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!

Here's the official trailer for Sacha Jenkins's doc Fresh Dressed, originally from StyleHaul on YouTube:

Fresh Dressed Poster

"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.

    A hip-hop fashion documentary, and no Andre 3000? Now that's wack.

      My guess he was too busy with the Jimi biopic if that's still a go.
      • kevjohn
        A go? It's already on Netflix. "All is By My Side".
      You can't assume the Andre 3000 its not in the documentary, from just a preview.!!!

  • 90's hiphop style was my favourite, it was great to be able to make something cool from very little. The Polo-rican guys should have some fun stories about their Ralph Lauren heists, their style is almost a religious dedication to a clothing brand.

    You should stop commenting.

      Agreed. Perhaps mods should interfere. This smells bad.

    And the US moving toward third world. Good grief. This is the kind of stuff you laughed about when you watched a movie like Terry Gilliam's Brazil.
