WATCH: Bill Cunningham New York
A staff favourite here at Reflekt, Bill Cunningham New York follows New York cult figure and first streetstyle photographer Bill Cunningham as he captures the heart and soul of the Big Apple's fashion scene on and off the runways.
His effervescent smile and positive outlook on life is inspiring. I love his perspective that money is a prison from freedom and freedom to create. He is the pinnacle of anti-elitism and treats everyone with the same respect and his warm personality. From the old aristocrats of NY socialites to the clubkids hanging out in the lower east side. They are all his "kids" and he loves every single one of them for the individuality.
The film is riddled with nuggets of wisdom such as "The best fashion show is on the street. Always has, always will be." and "Money is the cheapest thing you can have". After his tearful passing this year during NYFW all of the fashion photographers paid tribute to the father of the tent by wearing his signature blue jacket. Enjoy your day off and relax and unwind with good 'ole Bill and this feel good fashion film!
