Signé Chanel is a five-part series by filmmaker Loïc Prigent, documenting the evolution of Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2004-2005 collection. It is kind of a slow watch, but if you are truly interested with the history and behind the scenes stories of a chanel haute collection = brilliant. Surprisingly, there is not a lot of Karl (just enough). The series focuses more on the seamstresses that actually make the clothing, by hand of course - all having this subtle french humour and calm. I caught it on Sundance, but a wonderful person has loaded all the episodes on You Tube for you to enjoy at your own leisure. Also, if you want to check out the french site, click here.
