That Balmain documentary was kind of lovely, even though it documents the creation of one of the worst collections I've had the disgrace to lay my eyes upon. Though there are many hideous things going, on apart from the clothes: the awful narrator and its shallow commentaries, the tacked-on Pierre Balmain anecdotes (so lazy and they disrupt the pacing) and the whole Rihanna drama which was simply ridiculous.

Still I was very entrenained watching those poor petites-mains and interns slaving over that god awful halter top and hand-dying the rope dress. The staff was pretty likeable and fun to watch-especially that intern Steven, he is just so adorable. Also I instantly understood how is that Olivier manages to make each new collection look heavier than the one before: his "design" process is basically JUST ADDING EVEN MORE STUFF TO THE OLD COLLECTION. No wonder the poor models can't even walk-or breath for that matter-with his clothes on.

https://m2m.tv/the-day-before My favorite is the Alber Elbaz documentary, but the link leads to 8 episodes (out of 11 in the series) of the Day Before series.

The Franca documentary is now on Netflix and it's actually very good.. but maybe knowing the ending (spoiler alert: she dies) makes it all a bit bittersweet from the start. I liked the son-mother approach and seeing her from that light, she was such an interesting woman, tough but with humor and sensibility... she seemed to have great perspectives on pretty much anything, even the things she pretended not to care much about.. I liked what she said about love towards the end and also felt a little sad that she didn't get to experience that, on the other hand, she lived an extraordinary professional life, acquired for herself immense creative freedom and her legacy will go straight into history.

^^^ Thanks for the reminder. So glad she will forever be immortalized in such a personal, insightful manner of inspiration.

That quote is exactly like something my best friend would say to me: Her family is the living incarnation of the Bluths, and her mum is Lucille. Hilarious.

My favorite is Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton. It documents the creation of his S/S 2007 Collections. It's available on Amazon Prime.

During the holiday season, i was able to watch the Dries documentary, the Franca movie and even the Zac Posen thing.
I was a bit bored by Dries. It lacked rythm and i found it quite pretentious. While i love his clothes and find his personality interesting, i wasn't really excited about him after the documentary.

The Franca movie is great and in a time when we talk a lot about women empowerement and feminism, that movie is needed. This is a story of a wonderwoman. She has lived quite a wild life for a woman coming from a conservative bourgeois background in a very conservative italian society. It's a pity that like in a lot of women stories, she wasn't as accomplished in her love life as she wanted...

The Zac Posen doc was a good surprise. It's a perfect tale on th reality of the industry and the smokes and mirrors. I'm not a Zac Posen fan, i've never been interested in his designs but that documentary is quite informative. This is a documentary that i would totally recommend to all the fashion students to watch.
