7 Days Out Review 2018 TV-Show Series Cast Crew Online
Stars: Mike Gowen, Sean McCarthy, Hernan Pacheco
Review: These days it seems hardly a week goes past before Netflix adds yet another must-watch show or movie to our ever growing lists. And after a veritable hit parade of comedy series and teen rom-coms, the streaming powerhouse is now expanding their documentary category with a new series called 7 Days Out, which explores a week in the life of notable individuals in fashion, film, entertainment, sports—even space exploration!
The program, which debuts on the platform on December 21 (just in time for a good holiday binge), is turning the lens on its first subject: legendary Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld. According to WWD, the series will capture seven days in the fashion fast lane for the visionary as he prepares for the iconic fashion house’s Spring 2018 Couture Show. Viewers will get an inside look at how Lagerfeld transported the show’s guests to a garden party at the Grand Palais and the debut of 2018’s couture bride, Adut Akech Bior, the second black bride in Chanel history after Alek Wek.
There are lots of things that can be said about Netflix’s new behind-the-scenes docuseries 7 Days Out, but the main one should be that it bothers to explore an extremely diverse range of topics. Which is a gift and a curse, really. On the one hand it’s fascinating to see NASA prepare to crash a space probe into a planet. But on the other it’s pretty hard to give a shit about the Westminster Dog Show when you know that’s coming.
Still, different strokes and all that. The series was created by renowned documentarian Andrew Rossi, and he personally directs three episodes – both the dog show and NASA’s Cassini mission, and another hour-long instalment chronicling the making of Chanel’s Spring 2018 Haute Couture collection and runway show. If you’re wondering what any of this has to do with the reopening of Eleven Madison Park, the Kentucky Derby or a League of Legends tournament, the clue is in the title. 7 Days Out hones in on the week prior to a major event in diametrically-opposed industries, from fashion and food to competitive e-sports and space. The point, one assumes, is to highlight the similarities between experts and visionaries who commit their entire lives to the pursuit of a particular objective.
Andrew Rossi, who notably was the mastermind behind The First Monday in May, a behind-the-curtain look at the annual Met Gala’s China Through the Looking Glass exhibition, was granted access to shoot all of the happening storm the Chanel show, from moments in the studio to the preparation process and, of course, the main event.
This episode joins other Netflix fashion documentaries in eluding Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards and Dries.
