Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things
There's no denying that minimalism has been one of the biggest trends in the design space in the past year. While many people took the Marie Kondo approach to their homes, this documentary centers on why people are letting go to prove material things don't necessarily buy happiness.
If you're a maximalist, Iris Apfel just might be your spirit animal. The hilarious 90-something is a fashion legend who makes the point never to play it safe. The documentary covers her bargain hunting strategy, incredible collections, and how she has charmed the giants of the design world with her style and wit.
