Each episode of the season “tackles a landmark movie that captured a major fashion look of an era, and then decodes what that look meant — to the culture that spawned it, the people who wore it, and the audiences who watched it on screen,” per MUBI.

From Jean Seberg’s inimitable style in Jean-Luc Godard’s “Breathless” to a two-part exploration of how fashion folds into Sofia Coppola’s entire career, this season features insights from two-time Oscar-winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter (“Black Panther”), “Do The Right Thing” cinematographer Ernest Dickerson, director Franc Roddam (“Quadrophenia”), fashion designer Anna Sui, director and documentarian Kevin Macdonald, and Sofia Coppola herself.

Check out the full episode list and exclusive teaser below, with language courtesy of MUBI. The company’s 2023 releases included Independent Spirit Award nominee “Passages” and International Feature Film Oscar contenders “Fallen Leaves” and “The Settlers.” MUBI releases Cannes winner “How to Have Sex” stateside this year as well as Radu Jude’s Locarno hit “Do Not Expect Too Much from the End of the World.”
