The fashion gossips of Loïc Prigent

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.
