Marine Fashion Exhibition in London

The Marine Museum of London has prepared, during the 25 of Julio and the 2 of December an exhibition in which is made a complete passage through the marine fashion, specially focused in its inclusion between the culture and the style of life, as their organizers recognize.

From brass buttons to bell-bottoms, naval and nautical styles have been adapted and borrowed and to create new styles and fashions, identities and statements for the last 150 years. Sailor Chic explores the use of nautical styles to express solidarity, patriotism, rebellion and sexuality.

This new exhibition links traditional naval uniforms from the National Maritime Museum's collection with more recent reincarnations from contemporary designers including Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Kenzo and John Galliano.

Fashion first took on a nautical twist with the sailor suit as a style essential for affluent children in Victorian England. Today, navy jackets, sailor stripes and epaulettes continue to influence high street fashion.

Sailor Chic explores how naval costume became a source of inspiration in popular culture through music, advertising, and on the stage and cinema screen.

Historical, romantic or pirate-inspired, this exhibition illustrates the powerful impact of sailor style and how it continues to make waves in fashion.
