Spike Lee, who headed Cannes Film Festival jury this year, created quite a stir. For one, he accidentally revealed the Palme d’Or winner before it was supposed to be out (the coveted honour was bestowed upon Julia Ducournau’s Titane). The American director also grabbed attention for his outfit. Quite a fashion enthusiast, he opted for a trippy ensemble.

It consisted of a black suit and matching trousers, but what stood out was the thick brushstroke paints on it, lending it the quality of an artefact.

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