The fashion gossips of Loïc Prigent

Scandales Mode Peta Catwalk

You adored the trial of Naomi Campbell in “blood diamonds”, the Galliano affair or the totally misogynous interview of Coco Chanel ?

Cool, the truculent Loïc Prigent flashes back onto all these scandals of the fashion planet, through a documentary dedicated to Summer Of Scandals on Arte, to be aired next Saturday, the 23rd of July.

On the program: the open war between Marc Jacobs and Suzy Menkes, the shocking advent of porno chic, the super subversive campaigns of Benetton, showcasing a father holding a son who is dying from Aids, or John Galliano and his catwalk of Parisians bagmen for a Dior show

It’s a real fashion story that Prigent presents on the screen, with his famous humouristic touches, in a 52-min film cut up in  six themes with strong archive images.

A series of spotlight moments that show how much fashion likes to shock. As Loïc Prigent point out so well: “If you ask fashion to be reasonable, et it will spit in your face a new unusual trend”—that says it all!

We like: the Arte replay, for those who missed the first broadcast.
