John Malkovich (“The New Pope”), Emily Mortimer (“The Pursuit of Love”), and Claes Bang (“The Northman”) are set to star alongside Ben Mendelsohn, Juliette Binoche and Maisie Williams in Apple TV+’s “The New Look,” a World War II-set drama about fashion icons Christian Dior and Coco Chanel, reports Deadline.
About ‘The New Look’
Here’s how ‘The New Look’ is described: Inspired by true events and filmed exclusively in Paris, “The New Look” is a live-action, World War II-era thriller that centers on the pivotal moment in the twentieth century when Paris led the world back to life through its fashion icon, Christian Dior (Mendelsohn), whose creations dominated world fashion in the decade following World War II. The interwoven saga will include the surprising stories of Dior’s contemporaries and rivals: the grand dame Coco Chanel (Binoche), Balmain, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Pierre Cardin, Yves Saint Laurent and more.
Malkovich will play Lucien Lelong, President of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture whose influential eponymous fashion house employed Dior and Balmain during the Occupation.
Mortimer will portray Eva Colozzi, friend, confidante and style inspiration to Coco Chanel.
Bang will play Spatz (Hans Von Dincklage), a Nazi operative stationed in Paris to both seduce and spy on the Parisian female elite.
