Is This Hermes Doc The New Last Emperor Or September Issue?

Nothing makes us happier than the fusion of fashion and film—whether it’s a flick with amazing costumes à la Marie Antoinette or a real-life account in the vein of The Last Emperor and The September Issue. So, when we heard that Hermès was debuting a new documentary, Hearts and Crafts, taking viewers behind-the-scenes at the iconic French fashion house, we could barely contain our excitement. In an era that favors fast fashion and high-street knockoffs, this film centers on the artisans who painstakingly craft the timeless, luxe handbags, scarves, and saddles by hand. This 47-minute-long film, directed by Frédéric Laffont and Isabelle Dupuy-Chavanat, will premiere in Paris and debut on the Sundance Chanel stateside, but until then, make sure you peep this preview from Full Frontal Fashion.
