Nautical Chic by Amber Jane Butchart

WHEN:

22nd May 2015 to 13th September 2015
Paid Entry

WHERE:

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

WHAT:

This display takes inspiration from the pages of Nautical Chic, the new publication by fashion historian Amber Jane Butchart. Charting the influence of the enduring archetypes of the sea on the history of style, from the Officer, the Sailor and the Fisherman, to the Sportsman and the Pirate, that have had a wide reaching impact throughout the course of fashion to contemporary design today.

The enduring sophistication of nautical style is celebrated by Butchart in this richly illustrated, thoroughly researched work; its exploration of the enduring appeal of this perennially popular trend sheds light on the myth, the reality and the romance of the high seas. The classic blue and white stripes – beloved by couture designer Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel – and the All-American look of the East Coast are present, alongside pirate’s shirts, officer jackets and bell-bottom trousers.
