Gaultier – Freak & Chic | Gaultier – Freak & Chic (N/C 15+)

Models are cool people. Beautiful glamazons. You don’t think of them as freaks unless you’re Jean-Paul Gaultier. The French designer dedicated an entire show to just this. Freak & Chic is a feature documentary that shows us this crazy world, as well as the hard work and creativity that went into shaping this wild party. Gaultier is renowned as the enfant terrible of French fashion. At his first show in 1976, he fused high style with a punk ethos. This subversive nature has peppered his career and some of this same spirit is captured here by the director, Yann L’Hénoret. The latter followed Gaultier and Co. for six months from the conception through to the design, planning and finessing that took place especially for this show.

Dir Yann L’Hénoret | 2018 | France | 90 mins | Int sales Studiocanal

The film captures the designer’s eccentricity as well as the highlights of his long and storied career, including clips from Catherine Deneuve, Madonna and more. – The Guardian
