Apple TV+ Orders Series ‘The New Look’ About Dior and Chanel

Apple TV+ has ordered the series “The New Look,” a thriller set against the World War II Nazi occupation of Paris when Coco Chanel’s reign as the world’s most famous fashion designer ends and Christian Dior rises.

“The New Look” will be produced by Apple Studios and written, executive produced and directed by Todd A. Kessler (“Bloodline,” “Damages,” “The Sopranos”), with Emmy Award winner Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One, “Bloodline”) and Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche (The English Patient, Chocolat) attached to star.

Inspired by true events and filmed exclusively in Paris, “The New Look” centers on the pivotal moment in the 20th century when Paris led the world back to life through its fashion icons, including Christian Dior (played by Mendelsohn), whose creations dominated world fashion in the decade following World War II. The interwoven saga will include the stories of Dior’s contemporaries and rivals: the grand dame Coco Chanel (played by Binoche), Balmain, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Pierre Cardin, Yves Saint Laurent and more.
