APPLE TV+

The New Look

Premieres on Feb 14

Based on a true story, the series explores the rise of fashion designer Christian Dior in the wake of World War II’s conclusion. Still reeling from the war, for many in the industry, creation through fashion was a way to live through and after the chaos of the fighting. Along with his counterparts like Coco Chanel, Pierre Balmain and Cristobal Balenciaga, their ideas launched the concept of modern fashion. The series addresses Dior’s initial rise to the top with his iconic imprint of beauty and influence, which ultimately threatens to dethrone Chanel’s stronghold as the world’s most famous fashion designer. Although it is a series about the growth of fashion and the icons who created such ideas, the show also serves as a historical drama, given its setting in post-war Europe.

Featuring never-before-seen footage of head coach Bill Belichick, Tom Brady nd Robert Kraft, the series reveals what it cost them and the organisation for such greatness. From the team’s notorious accusations of cheating and the Deflagrate scandal, which led to Brady's suspension and a fine, to the horrendous controversies regarding tight end Aaron Hernandez and his murder conviction, the docus-eries addresses all of it. Given the nature of the show, viewers don’t need to be hardened football fans to enjoy the series.
