We're back! Style Cinema is returning again in January with a special double-feature night of Unzipped and Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton! This pairing of documentaries is the original line-up that Catie (of Cuffington) and I watched many months ago at my house, and which we want to bring to you!
The first film is the 1995 documentary Unzipped, about Isaac Mizrahi and his design process as he plans his 1994 collection. The wit, the humor, the models, the curly hair - it's all there, even the then supermodel now First Lady of France, Carla Bruni. For me, I love that Unzipped leads to so many other Style Cinema-worthy titles; Mizrahi cites many films throughout as his inspiration, including 1922's Nanook of the North, 1928's The Passion of Joan of Arc, and one of my personal favorites, 1948's The Red Shoes.
Next, we'll move on to Loïc Prigent's playful and insightful documentary Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton, which follows the frenetic pace Marc Jacobs maintains as he designs both his own and Louis Vuitton's collections for the Spring of 2007. As I mentioned in my post about this film from October 2007, this film means a lot to me as it debuted just a few months after I'd left the offices of Louis Vuitton, and the final collection shown in the film is the last collection of my time there.
As both of these documentaries are in my own collection, they are films I watch somewhat frequently and which I always find incredibly inspiring. They're vibrant, exciting, and provide amazing insight into the creative process - fashion and artistic.
Please join us on Thursday evening, January 14th 2010 at the Velo Rouge Cafe for our double feature. The cafe offers food, wine, beer, and cafe drinks, and Alice & Isa will also be on-hand with a few select products from their collection for you to shop. Be sure to come early for seating as we filled the tables in October when we played Marie Antoinette!
Cannot wait to see all of you!
