The ‘New Look’ Will Serve Fashion in 2024

In the pipeline since early 2022, “The New Look,” a World War II-set drama from Apple TV+, is finally ready to work the runway. Starring Ben Mendelsohn (“Cyrano”) as fashion icon Christian Dior and French acting legend Juliette Binoche as Coco Chanel, the stylish series will explore the rise of the house of Dior as the world was embroiled in a century-defining battle. The cast includes John Malkovich, Emily Mortimer, Maisie Williams (“Game of Thrones”) and Claes Bang (“The Square”). Given occupied France’s atmosphere of dread during the war, expect to encounter as much turmoil as tights, but all the same it probably won’t be able to help itself from delivering glamour and queer resistance to the terror of the time. Apple TV+ will drop the first few episodes on Feb. 14 with weekly installments to follow. Now that’s a Valentine.
