Pass It Forward: 3 Fashion Documentaries

I'll keep the post short and sweet as the documentaries are long. My first love is Hermes. I love everything about my Kelly and Birkin (despite the fact that I don't ever use the latter). I love that the leather was carefully chosen and that the bags were handmade from start to finish by a single artisan. I love the exquisite workmanship, the smooth resin along the top, the beautiful pebbled grains on the Togo leather or the smoothness and shiny surface of the goatskin, the sometimes uneven white stitching along the seams to the little marks that I'd made from carrying the bags.The little imperfections made them perfect in my eyes.

The same applies to Chanel jackets. I've dreamt of owning the little black jacket from Chanel for years. Perhaps I'm older now and prefer quality over quantity or maybe I'm a mom.The idea of lovingly using and preserving these exquisite beauties and passing them to my daughter when she's older really appeals to me.

Hope you enjoy the videos!

** A HUGE thank you to Avril of School Gate Style for the feature on Britsmum and Fauxionista for the wonderful write up. Merci!

    2. Jody, your sister is a filmmaker? I'm intrigued so you'd better tell me lots and lots about her. You're right about the instant appeal and popularity of fashion documentaries. I mean just take a look at the Little Black Jacket by Chanel. It's gone viral.

  9. I love a good fashion documentary. I rarely have time to watch anything these days, but I catch up on long haul flights. There has been no shortage of long flights this year! The Hermes films are always so artfully done. It's next in my queue. I really can't wait to see the new Karl Lagerfeld documentary, "Karl Lagerfeld Se Dessine" in honor of his 30 years at Chanel.
