Art Deco style is the perfect backdrop for lingerie. It is the look of “Old Hollywood,” luxury liners, elegant train compartments, and big city skyscrapers. At first glance, this decorative and architectural aesthetic from the 1920s and 30s seems to sweep away all that came before it. Yet it is an amalgam of influences, from Aztec to Egyptian to Bauhaus. Picture London’s Savoy Hotel or New York’s Empire State Building or anywhere in Miami Beach. Imagine fountains, towers, stained glass, murals. Each work of Art Deco tells the story of a proud new day. Tell your story in these “Jazz Age” partners from Jane’s Vanity.
Coco de Mer’s new Gilded Arch lingerie designs draw Art Deco inspiration from the textile archives of London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. The result is an exquisite geometric pattern of black and gold embroidery on transparent black tulle. Two styles show it off: the Gilded Arch Lingerie Set offers an underwire bra and matching high-waisted thong with adjustable keyhole at back. Or, try a more flapper-esque iteration with The Gilded Arch Bralette Set that features a bandeau top and its own high-waisted thong.
Burnished gold tracery epitomizes the mood of Art Deco. The Clara Fuchsia Camisole from Gilda & Pearl accents its vibrant silk body with a deep hem of Deco-influenced antique lace. The spaghetti straps and a low-cut back balance the opulence with delicious simplicity.
Christine Vancouver’s Faberge Gown is your Deco siren song in deepest periwinkle. Full length and slit at sides, its only embellishment is the stylized black lace at cups and along the sheer mesh band. A glamorous choice for your date with Hercule Poirot.
The Alba Nancy Silk Pajama from Olivia Von Halle celebrates the verve of Art Deco with its charming pattern of dancing zebras. The shortie style is perfect for travel.
