Cannes 2021: Spike Lee opts for a trippy costume as the festival draws to a close


Spike Lee, who chaired the jury of the Cannes Film Festival this year, caused a sensation. On the one hand, he accidentally revealed the Palme d’Or winner before he was supposed to come out (the coveted honor went to Titane by Julia Ducournau). The American director also drew attention for his outfit. Passionate about fashion, he opted for a trippy ensemble.

It consisted of a black suit and matching pants, but what stood out were the thick brush paints, giving it the quality of an artifact.

The director has always used fashion as a weapon of expression and declaration. At the 2020 Oscar, he paid a touching tribute to the late basketball player Kobe Bryant as he stepped out in a custom suit. The purple and gold Gucci suit featured Bryant’s jersey number – 24.
