Our newest film is the story of the fashion illustrator and fashion icon Antonio Lopez: Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex, Fashion & Disco from director James Crump. We picked up the film in production earlier this year and are now happy to confirm the world premiere at BFI London Film Festival.
An intimate portrait of Antonio Lopez, the most influential fashion illustrator of the 1970s. Featuring interviews from Grace Coddington, Jessica Lange, Bill Cunningham and many more, we follow Antonio's rise to fame at a time when fashion designers and their entourages became the rock stars. Antonio was known for discovering new talent, among them Pat Cleveland, Grace Jones, Jerry Hall, Donna Jordan and Jane Forth. The film explores the intimate relationship between Antonio and Karl Lagerfeld, while unpacking Lagerfeld’s deep-seated rivalry with Yves Saint Laurent.
