Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Apple TV+ is teasing the new series The New Look.

The streaming service shared a trailer for the fashion drama Wednesday featuring Ben Mendelsohn and Juliette Binoche as designers Christian Dior and Coco Chanel.

The New Look is created, written, directed and executive produced by Todd A. Kessler (The Sopranos, Damages).

The show opens during the Nazi occupation of Paris during World War II and focuses on "the pivotal moment in the 20th century when the French city led the world back to life through its fashion icon Christian Dior."

"As Dior rises to prominence with his groundbreaking, iconic imprint of beauty and influence, Chanel's reign as the world's most famous fashion designer is put into jeopardy. The interwoven saga follows the surprising stories of Dior's contemporaries and rivals from Chanel to Pierre Balmain, Cristóbal Balenciaga and more; and, provides a stunning view into the atelier, designs and clothing created by Dior through collaboration with the House of Dior," an official synopsis reads.
