Nautical style has been an enduring mainstay of the fashion world, and Nautical Chic is a lavish celebration of its iconic looks and perennial popularity, tracing the history of its trends and impact on the clothes we love. Each chapter traces a current nautical trend from its origins to reveal the secrets of its sartorial past. While “The Officer” details how epaulettes, brass buttons, and braiding came to be Balmain and Givenchy catwalk staples, “The Sailor” explores the undeniable sex appeal of the Navy, and “The Fisherman” charts how blue-and-white Breton stripes became the choice of such style arbiters as Coco Chanel and Audrey Hepburn. “The Sportsman” covers this classic all-American look, while “The Pirate” concludes the book with an homage to Captain Hook, Vivienne Westwood, and Alexander McQueen. Nautical Chic is the definitive history of nautical fashion, citing the most recognizable trends, the icons who made them memorable, and the intriguing story of how they came to be.
