High Fashion on the High Seas: Nautical Chic
March 26, 2015 @ 2:30 pm£8
Fashion historian Amber Jane Butchart discusses why nautical style is always in fashion
From Chanel’s coastal couture to Westwood’s piratical punk, Jean Paul Gaultier’s beefcake camp to Tommy Hilfiger’s preppy classics, Nautical Chic is the definitive history of nautical fashion and the way it has cut a sartorial swathe for over two centuries. Nautical style has an enduring sophistication, and this volume is a glorious celebration of its perennial popularity, tracing the history of its trends and impact on the clothes we love – from the beaches of Cape Cod and Nantucket. With evocative imagery of life on the ocean waves, Nautical Chic is the deifinitive history of high style on the high seas. Amber Jane Butchart is Associate Lecturer at London College of Fashion, a cultural historian for the 21st century, popular fashion blogger and a fixture on the London fashion scene.
