Here's a must-read for those enraptured by the opulent fashions of the 1920s – Jazz Age Fashion: Dressed to Kill by Virginia Bates and Daisy Bates.
With the Great Gtasby movie all over the papers (and readying itself for the big screen), it seems like the right time to go back to source and revisit a range that mixes style with substance. That being F.Scott's Fitzgerald's Penguin Hardback Classics.
This Jazz Age wallpaper from Art Decor succeeds in capturing some of the vibrancy of that period.
If we can have the fun of living a glamorous life in 1920s Paris, at least we can now buy a design that illustrates it thanks to French Flo's furnishing fabrics.
The series aims to examine the fashions of the twentieth century decade by decade. This book (as the name suggests) takes a look at the twenties. There's an introduction that puts the fashion into context before it heads onto the main reason for buying this book – the images. There's over 600 of them for inspiration, spread over the 576 pages of the book, including photographs, illustrations and advertising.
If this has fired your enthusiasm, you'll be pleased to hear the next in the series – looking at the fashions of the 1930s – is due out at the end of the June.
The book is currently available for £21.21 on Amazon.
