New Delhi: Between 1939 and 1945, millions of lives were devastated by the terrifying World War II. There was a massive battle going on between the Allies and the Axis, and almost every country was a part of it. It was difficult to distinguish between soldiers and civilians since these nations invested all their resources—financial, industrial, and intellectual—into this enormous conflict. This battle was unlike any other.
The series tells the story of Christian Dior developing his fashion line, which he termed The New Look, in Paris following the end of World War II.
Parisian haute couture from the turn of the century is shown in The New Look. However, it also transports us to the painful and bleak era of WWII.
It is quite remarkable to know that Christian Dior and Coco Chanel, amid the horrors of World War II, came up with a revolutionary style of clothing that revolutionised the fashion industry. To put it another way, it was like casting a hopeful light into a dark world. Not only will the drama be visually stunning, but it will also provide fresh insight into that time.
A preview featuring charming period attire and wistful cityscapes was just released by the streaming giant. Some major life events, including fellow French fashion designers Coco Chanel and Christian Dior, are hinted at in the teaser as well.
