The saga of the Pirelli calendar

The arrival of a new year of fashion and the arrival of the Pirelli calendar always go hand in hand; no small achievement for a tyre brand. But our attention this year shan’t be solely focussed on Karl Lagerfeld’s 2011 Pirelli calendar but also on a documentary that shall chart the history of the calendar from 1964 through to last year’s edition.

The Pirelli calendar becomes a film: its history, from 1964 to 2010, to be told for the first time in the documentary ‘The saga of the Pirelli calendar‘ created by Emmanuel Le Ber. It will be broadcast 13 November on the French TV channel Paris Premiere.

While there are no pictures available from next year’s calendar (two behind the scenes pictures can be found below), you can find the full (NSFW) 2010 Pirelli calendar, including behind the scenes pictures, by following that link.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
