The film peers beneath the oversized pants and graffiti-sprayed jackets to examine the cultural psyche that spawned them.
As rhythmic and hypnotic as the old-school hip-hop-heavy soundtrack that supports it.
"Fresh Dressed" shines a light on the hip-hop fashion phenomenon, but it's not just about hip hop; it's about ambition and absorption and our need - black, white, brown, whatever - for authenticity.
The throwback elements of "Fresh Dressed" are probably enough for most people to thoroughly enjoy the film. But nostalgia only gets you so far, and I hungered for more sustenance.
Much of this film is told through interviews: Mr. Kani is fascinating and also funny; Mr. Combs is cocksure; and Kanye West is appealingly hyper.
Fashion is the primary focus of Sacha Jenkins' vibrant documentary on hip-hop style-and indeed, it leaves no Air Jordan or FUBU overall unturned.
I had to admit that [the] manner of blending, mixing, and reappropriating high-end brands was indeed consistent with my hip-hop innovation criteria.
Caught between two competing desires: wanting to celebrate hip-hop culture's early street style while also condemning the capitalization of that culture by brands
If you want a graduate degree in the history of hip-hop fashion, look elsewhere; if you're looking for an entry level course, Fresh Dressed is a great primer.
Excellent docu on hip-hop fashion's rise has profanity.
The film offers a scholarly commentary on aspiration, self-projection and the street-level appropriation of couture exclusivity ...
The fascination of Fresh Dressed lies in the inventive and revealing way it interweaves politics, music and sociology. This, it turns out, is much more than just a documentary about fashion.
