The most anticipated film release of the year, The Great Gatsby is upon us and here at Yumi we couldn’t be more excited to dress up like Daisy (played in the latest adaptation by Carey Mulligan) in the latest flapper fashion!
The Jazz Age has been an influence on the catwalks since summer 2012 and first fully materialized on Ralph Lauren’s runway, with the collection catering for both day in mannish pin-stripe suits and cloche hats, to evening, with the most glamorous of embellished gowns in silver, gold and soft pastel shades. Emporio Armani, Gucci, Alberta Ferretti and Etro quickly followed suit with drop waist sequined skirts and beading and feathers.
For Spring / Summer 2013 Alberta Ferretti again revived the trend with layers of beading on dresses and peek-a-boo lace. Nina Ricci was another purveyor of the drop waist waist fringed dresses – perfect for any cocktail party.
This season our key 1920’s inspired pieces come in the form of our Art-Deco embellished tunic dress, sundress and kaftan, plus our drop waist pleat dress, all from Uttam Boutique. Our lace dresses from Yumi aren’t half bad either, choose tones of antique cream or grey for an authentic take on the theme and accessorize with pearls!
