Imressionism, like no other fine arts movement, has elevated fashion to a real art form. More than simply depicting the clothing style of their contemporaries, impressionist painters tell us something about art. In this documentary, curators, historians and even fashion designers such as Karl Lagarfeld, tell us about the legacy of this movement which promoted a resolute modernism.
