Sailor Chic Exhibit

Everyone should go to London and visit the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich London. The museum is holding the exhibit “Sailor Chic”. Sailor Chic is a special exhibition celebrating the influence of nautical style on fashion.

It explores how nautical style has been used to express patriotism, rebellion and sexuality. It also shows its influence in pop culture, music and fashion. The exhibits will display a selection of important collections from the portrait of little Price Albert Edward to current top fashion designer collection of Jean Paul Gaultier,Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano.

Just like Suzy Menkes I want I’m intrigue to find out how sailor style can look completely classic for women and very campy for men.
