Hello sailor

Winter may just be starting to bite, but anybody planning their summer wardrobe well ahead may well like to consider a nautical theme. Why? Because the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich is stepping down from its usual high-minded level to run a summer exhibition called Sailor Chic, celebrating the fact that ‘various groups in society have adopted, imitated and reinvented naval fashion including the patriotic, dissidents, the young and the fashion-conscious’. The exhibition will include a selection of important pieces from the museum's rich uniform collections alongside key objects from fashion collections and archives from across the UK and Europe. You have been warned.
