Movie Info

FRESH DRESSED offers a fascinating glimpse inside the complex relationship between fashion and hip-hop, and the hustle and swagger that brought baggy pants and graffiti-drenched jackets from the streets to high fashion catwalks and Middle American shopping malls. Director Sacha Jenkins draws from a rich mix of archival materials from the 70s, 80s and 90s and present day in-depth interviews with more than 70 music and fashion industry luminaries including: Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Nasir Jones, Dapper Dan, Big Daddy Kane, Riccardo Tisci and André Leon Talley. The result is FRESH DRESSED, a passionate re-telling of the evolution of hip hop culture from the South Bronx to Paris Fashion Week. (C) Goldwyn

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.
