Why We Love Art Deco Style
18th October 2018
Picking a look to help you stand out from the crowd this party season can often feel overwhelming when there are so many options available on the market. Adding some sparkle to our outfits is something we love doing at Lucy Quartermaine HQ and when it comes to choosing glitzy graphic details, nothing oozes effortless glamour like art deco style.
This blog looks at some of the reasons we love art deco style.
Where did art deco style originate?
Art deco sometimes referred to as Deco, is a design style that began in Paris in the 1920’s and prospered around the world thereafter. It first appeared just before World War 1 and influenced the design of buildings, furniture, jewellery and fashion. Art deco combines modernist styles with luxury craft and materials, and thanks to films like The Great Gatsby the aesthetic is still popular today.
Why we love it?
Art deco style is having a major resurgence. Modernist, abstract and geometric prints are displayed on the covers of high-end magazines and in the windows of high street retailers. It’s a style trend that has stood the test of time and for good reason – it represents a romantic exuberance that we can’t get enough of.

6. Wear a bold print
