Fashion-Films-Feast! #6: BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK

MARIA-MARIA_Fashion-Films-Feast_BILLCUNNINGHAMNEWYORK-6

EVERY STREET STYLE blog around owes much of its existence to Bill Cunningham. The man in a blue working coat has been pursuing beauty in fashion for decades, with a column in the New York Times that goes back to 1978, covering the first Yves Saint Laurent prêt-a-porter show or Halston presentations. The documentary you’re about to see, BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK, is sixth in the Fashion Films Feast! series and shows us a bit more about the boy who dropped out of Harvard, never had a single love relationship in his life, lives in a cabinet with no kitchen or bathroom, doesn’t accept even a glass of water on venues, has a hard time talking about religion, and at 85 years old still roams the streets of the world in his bike, every single day, looking for beauty. Watch and learn, kids!

É UMA VERDADE ABSOLUTA: Todos os bloggers de Street Style deste mundo devem muito a Bill Cunningham. O senhor de cabelos (agora) brancos e bata azul tem vindo a perseguir a beleza na moda há décadas, com uma coluna no New York Times que remonta a 1978, ao primeiro desfile de prêt-a-porter Yves Saint Laurent e às colecções de Halston. O documentário que vão ver, BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK, é o sexto deste Fashion Films Feast! e mostra-nos um pouco mais sobre o rapaz que desistiu de Harvard, nunca teve uma única relação amorosa, vive numa arrecadação sem cozinha ou casa de banho, não aceita sequer um copo de água nos eventos que fotografa, tem uma dificuldade enorme em falar sobre religião, e aos 85 anos ainda percorre as ruas do mundo na sua bicicleta, todos os dias, em busca de beleza. Vejam e aprendam, miúdos!

“His photographs were a turning point for the Times. It was the first time the paper had run pictures of well-known people without getting their permission.” / As suas fotografias foram um ponto de viragem para o Times. Era a primeira vez que o jornal publicava fotos de pessoas conhecidas sem pedir autorização.

— Arthur Gelb, NY Times Editor
