“The New Look” contrasts the Second World War with the hopes to rebuild Europe and how personal and professional rivalries destroyed one fashion reign while inspiring another. The 10-episode drama is created by Todd A. Kessler, best known for The Sopranos and Damages, who has also written or co-written most of the series.
“Set against the World War II Nazi occupation of Paris, “The New Look” focuses on the pivotal moment in the 20th century when the French city led the world back to life through its fashion icon Christian Dior,” says Apple. “As Dior rises to prominence with his groundbreaking, iconic imprint of beauty and influence, [Coco] Chanel’s reign as the world’s most famous fashion designer is put into jeopardy.”
Juliette Binoche stars as Coco Chanel, and Ben Mendelsohn as Christian Dior. The cast includes Maisie Williams, John Malkovich, Emily Mortimer, Claes Bang and Glenn Close, and the series was filmed exclusively in Paris.
“The New Look” debuts with its first three episodes on Wednesday, February 14, 2024, and then continues weekly until April 3, 2024.
