Established in the 1950s postwar War London, a garment manufacturer is delegated to create clothes for members of the high society and the royal family. Renowned tailor Reynolds Woodcock and his sister, Cyril, are at the center of British fashion, dressing their royalties, cinema stars, with the distinctive style of Woodcock’s House. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, assuring the inspirational bachelor and company, until he meets a young, determined woman, Alma, who soon becomes a central element of her life as a muse and a lover. Once controlled and planned, he now finds his meticulous cutlery life destroyed by love. Phantom Thread (2017) presents an illuminated portrait of both an artist on a creative journey and a woman who keeps her alert.
