The birth and history of hip hop has been well documented, from the music, block parties and digging in the crates for breaks to graffiti and breakdancing, all proving rich subjects for documentaries. But the accompanying fashion, the groundbreaking styles sported by early artists and fans of the genre, whose rush to find new threads, kicks and accessories went beyond Adidas sneakers and tracksuits to customised, graffiti jackets, Kangol hats and far, far beyond, hasn’t been given the attention it deserves…Until now.
Fly feature documentary Fresh Dressed charts the innovative, weird and wonderful styles worn by hip-hop artists, rappers and crews from fat-laced Adidas, Kangol hats to Cazal shades.
Sean “Puffy” Combs, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Nas and many more all wax lyrical on the importance of being Fresh Dressed in this fascinating film, due in cinemas and on download 30 October 2015, courtesy of Dogwoof, following its London Film Festival Premiere. The film will then make its DVD bow on 9 November 2015.
