Art Deco exuberance

 

After the war, between the 20’s and 30’s, there was an exuberance of style and pursuit of luxury, fueled by woman entering the workforce and lines of credit being available for the first time with the marketing masterstroke in the form of the lay-by. For integration of style elements, there was probably never a more complete symbiosis then that which occurred between architecture, furniture, graphics, fashion and decorative objects in Art Deco. The expanding movie industry at this time also promoted Art Deco and the aspiration for elegance and the high life.
With the evolution of the Art Deco lifestyle and its accompanying fashion designs in the 30’s, this coincided with an  increasing interest in international travel, sporting activities and greater leisure pursuits. This led to an increased demand for  more comfortable attire while simultaneously reflecting a streamlined chic that followed the emerging  trends in design. Freedom of movement in garments became a pivotal consideration, with ornate detail giving way to a more elegant simplicity which could be adapted to the willowy, lithesome lines of the more slender bodies. As women became more financially independent, they dressed with a more liberated style which was mirrored in outfits that were symbolically more flowing and less constricted. Floral fabric decorations were combined with dynamic geometric and abstract patterns highlighted with vivid colors.

The eclectic Art Deco designs successfully drew inspiration from the cubist, fauvist, futurist and surrealist movements including the Ballet Russes theater designs. Corsets had fallen out of favor along with the prudish, Victorian turn of century values. Cumbersome bustles had magically morphed into their opposite with revealing backless and sleek dresses. The rapidly developing consumerist society wanted style and quality and fabrics like soft crepe, chiffon and satin became desirable for their sleekness and elegance. Innovative seaming was utilized to allow for the appearance of more sensual body contours while adhering to a traditional allure of classical femininity, supporting this enormous upheaval of chic.

Demetre Chiparus – ‘Fan Dancer’

 

Illustrators and artists such as Dorte Clara Wolff , Tamara de Lempicka, Gyula Batthyány, Maurice Picaud and Louis Icart all embraced this exhilarating shift in style. Sculptors and ceramicists like Franz Hagenauer, Lorfenzl, Dunand, Royal Dux, Wayland Gregory, Pierre le Faguays, Erte and Demetre Chipuly also had a critical influence in defining this exuberant era of fashion and design. Famous couturiers, such as Paul Poiret, Coco Channel, Sonia Delaunay and Henry Marque beautifully interpreted the mood and trends into stunning designs and original creations.
