News for my lovely readers on the other side of the Atlantic --
There is an exhibit entitled "Sailor Chic — Fashion's Love Affair with the Sea" at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich (yes, the one where the Cutty Sark is). It opened on Wednesday, and I've heard good things!!
Expect pieces from Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, and paintings depicting the royal family in sailor dress, even posters from movies like "Anchors Aweigh" and "South Pacific".
See below for a little taste of what you'll get there.
