Film review: ‘Fresh Dressed’ ★★★

Director Sacha Jenkins’ Fresh Dressed (2015) harks back to the early 1990s, the nascent days of hip-hop and the change in fashion engendered by an entirely new musical form. Beneath the bold, multi-coloured graffiti-inspired designs, baggy pants and bling there’s more to this stylish documentary than initially meets the eye. There is some crossover early on with Shan Nicholson’s 2010 documentary Rubble Kings – which ploughs through the devastating violence and arson of the South Bronx in the 1970s.
