■ AMER­I­CAN STYLE

Albany Times Union (Sunday) - - TV / ENTERTAINMENT -

CNN, 9 p.m.

New Se­ries! This four-part do­cuseries ex­am­ines how Amer­ica’s chang­ing style through the decades has mir­rored the po­lit­i­cal, so­cial and eco­nomic cli­mate of the time. The pre­miere episode ex­plores style in the 1940s and ‘50s, how World War II and Hol­ly­wood helped cre­ate Amer­ica’s own fash­ion iden­tity, and the in­tro­duc­tion of new trends in­clud­ing the bikini and zoot suit. The sec­ond episode ex­plores the style of the ’60s and ’70s as the youth cul­ture comes into its own, and fash­ion, like pol­i­tics, goes to ex­tremes.
