What is the British style? London has always been a hotbed of new trends, and is by far the most stylish European capital. It’s no accident that punk, which prompted the biggest stylistic rebellion of the last century, started out in this city.
This documentary will be a lively, entertaining and colorful exploration of Britain’s wardrobe and British style. Using some revealing archives that span contemporary modes back to the 1950s, the fashion specialist Loïc Prigent uses his sharp eye and shrewd analysis to decode the changes in British dress codes, from uniforms, the aristocracy, lad culture, eccentrics, Anglicism, the British fashion industry, and the ultimate Englishwoman.
