Floral + Art Deco inspiration, geometric, architectural lines.
As I could always easily relate to the atmosphere and glamour of the 1910-20s, I am warmly welcoming the similarities reflected on the garments to be worn during the upcoming spring/summer seasons.
Key looks in the 1910s and their modern twists (if you drag the pointer over the picture you’ll see who are the contemporary and current designers)
-classic Greek-inspired goddess draping:
Key 1930s looks
-Art Deco inspiration:
As you can see from the above the Art Deco design brought us geometric shapes, symmetry and modernism as an other aspect being revived in 2012. Feeling rich in nostalgia, I am looking forward to this fresh breeze.
