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

  • Hardly revelatory, though about more than just street fashion.

  • With a bright explosion of politics, Kangol caps, Air Jordans, gold chains and Ralph Lauren Polo shirts, Fresh Dressed charts the genesis of hip-hop fashion in American culture.

  • 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.
