New York—Gatsby might be late but the hot Deco trend certainly isn’t.
The eagerly anticipated period fashion film “The Great Gatsby” starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan might’ve gotten pushed back from this month to May 2013, but New York’s most fashionable retailers are still banking on the Deco trend this Holiday season.
Of course they would’ve gotten quite a fashion bump from the movie, which was slated to open right about now, but consumers haven’t yet put their passion for Deco on hold, and the wave should carry the industry for a while.
Bergdorf Goodman celebrated the Jazz Age with an all women’s jazz band. Think Ziegfeld Follies with mannequins dazzling in everything from Alexander McQueen to Oscar de la Renta. There’s also a mirror made from 1,000 beveled mirrors, with matching mirrored gowns by Naeem Khan.
Henri Bendel presented an ode to the flapper, with bobbed hair, cloche hats and long strands of pearls (both around mannequins necks and on the Christmas trees). Meanwhile, in the soaring atrium, silver feathers in the atrium lobby and stylish mannequins in the window.
And for those who just can’t wait till May 6 to see the opening of “The Great Gatsby,” the studio has released a new trailer to tease the stylistas among us even further.
