Viktor & Rolf Farley Jazz Shoes


If you've ever fancied yourself as a toe-tapping Fred Astaire doing Puttin' on the Ritz then you should probably check out these Farley Jazz Shoes from Victor & Rolf.

Crafted in Italy, the shoes have a classic black and white brogue look, but a lighter leather sole and cotton mesh upper perfect for warmer weather. A great summer shoe for adding a masculine retro edge to floaty skirts and floral prints – and breaking into a spot of fancy footwork if the mood strikes.

The shoes cost £335 and you can buy them from Selfridges.

Jazz bed linen from Linea at House of Fraser

Jazz linea
If you called your design 'Jazz', you're expecting something eye-catching and that's the case with this Jazz bed linen by Linea, available at House of Fraser.

It's certainly colourful, with its use of pink, and the lines of its pattern could well be explained by a Jazz Age influence. However, it's also reminiscent of the 1960s Lucienne Day bed linen we featured earlier in the month and the Op-Art style lines of this design could suggest a sixties influence too. Whatever era you attribute its influence to, it's an undeniably eye-catching pattern. 

Prices start at £10 for a pillowcase and £35 for a single duvet cover.

1920s glamour wallpaper by Dupenny

Dupenny 1920s
Dupenny have teased us before with their designs based on Burlesque stars and 1950s housewives and Burlesque. Now the roaring twenties get their turn in this new design – 1920s glamour wallpaper

The design captures the decadence you'd associate with that period, with a range of beautiful ladies in varying states of undress, each illustrated in their own decorative frame. The design is crammed full of the cheeky charm that you'd associate with Dupenny's products. 

Like the ladies pictured, however, it doesn't come cheap. A panel of the wallpaper measures 52cm by 3m and costs £75.

Art Deco style Normandie chair from Benchmark

Normandie chair

You can't beat the Art Deco style for added instant glamour to your home. It's that era that informs these Normandie chairs from Benchmark.

The clue is in their name. Designed by Terence Conran, he's drawn inspiration from the famous Deco liner SS Normandie which entered service in 1935. This translates into the sleek lines of the chair which are available with either an oak or upholstered back and in natural oak, or a 'mocha stained' colour. The chairs don't come with the striking geometric fabric pictured (though you can ring the company and ask about it) and instead they're upholstered in the customer's own fabric, allowing you to make your own interpretation of the look. 

This glamorous look comes with a price tag of £595.
