If you’re in need of a statement look and love a bit glitz and glamour than you will love all things Art Deco (style moderne); a modern take on traditional art and an expression of embracing both the old and new.
If you have watched the Great Gatsby you will already be in awe of the fashion and sophisticated style of the era and are likely to have a deep appreciation for flapper dresses and bob haircuts.
Often referred to as Deco, Art Deco originated in France prior to World War I. It’s an iconic style, based on bold geometric patterns and rich colours. Art Deco influenced the design of architecture, jewellery (including our own), furniture, fashion, transportation and so much more.
Art Deco was and still is a sign of glamour, luxury and bold expression, all of which we have tried to encapsulate in our collection. Although it was a luxurious style it was not exclusive to just the elite. By the 1930s Art Deco was more mainstream and welcomed into the homes and lives of many Europeans.
Art Nouveau was a key influence, with nature motifs being transformed with bolder colours, materials and shapes. One of the key styles you will note about Art Deco is the angular geometry and bold shapes incorporated into design.
If you’re a fan of the Silver Screen and early Hollywood you will recognise some notable traits; the likes of cocktails, mirrors and lighting were extremely fashionable and can often be seen incorporated in Art Deco designs.
This style had a great impact on not only fashion, art and jewellery but also in the world of architecture. Some of the patterns and geometric shapes often found in Art Deco designs may seem familiar, this is because some of the most iconic Manhattan skyscrapers were built on deigns heavily influenced by this artistic style.
At Butler & Wilson we can’t get enough of glitz and glamour which is why it won’t come as a surprise that we have our very own luxury Art Deco jewellery collection, filled with beautifully bold designs.
