Talk: Nautical Chic

WHEN:

Thu 16th July 2015
Paid Entry

WHERE:

Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3XF

WHAT:

Join Fashion Historian Amber Jane Butchart for a talk on her new book Nautical Chic tracing the relationship between maritime dress and the fashionable wardrobe, uncovering stories, tracking the trends, and tracing the evolution of the style back to its roots in our seafaring past.

From the modernist elegance of Coco Chanel to Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood’s punk-fuelled pirates, the appeal of nautical dress has cut a sartorial swathe for over two centuries. But how did garments such as the blue and white fisherman’s top and peacoat cross over from uniform and workwear into fashionable dress?
