The upcoming Great Gatsby might be the epitome of the dazzling twenties but Maria Grachvogel Fall 2012 updated the glamorous decade to the present day for a modern woman with a Deco relaxedness and an androgynous twist.
It all started with Charleston – funky upbeat and speakeasy jazz echoed in the grand ballroom at the Savoy hotel as jewelled tones, alongside almond and teak, covered the perfectly draped and drop-waist creations. A golden playsuit with an open back was followed by a silk crepe Carraway catsuit and a long-sleeved Harlow dress before the final printed fireworks. Smoky firework prints were the centre of attention, as well of course as the the statement necklaces and metal Deco cuffs.
Seemingly not content with just perfectly flowing dresses, Grachvogel was also determined to design skirts that would suit anyone and everyone. With immaculate tailoring and a crisp variety to choose from, what is your number one must have for fall: a bubble shaped Ellington, a flippy Charleston or a pencil skirt with drop waist pockets?
