heaven tanudiredja fall/winter 2012. elaborate is certainly a word you might use to describe heaven tanudiredja’s jewellery pieces; though they’re not elaborate in the way that perhaps most jewellery are. tanudiredja’s offerings are always a mix of soft classicism & hard futurism, traditional shapes & avant garde details. indonesian born, but established as a label in belgium, tanudiredja is known for creating statements. fall 2012 pieces are beaded & spiked in ways that call to mind decorative armor — you’ll even notice the odd maltese cross shape working its way into necklaces & bibs — but the colour palette is decidedly modern. other black & gold pieces have a techno-futurism that could easily be based in the art deco movement. all, as you’ll see from the collection’s lookbook, are impressive statement pieces.
dora abodi fall 2012 is a collection that’s ahead of time & marked by fine details & craftsmanship. there’s a mix of themes & eras that could (1) be something you’d picture clinging to the body of cleopatra & (2) something that might have been dreamed up in the art deco era. abodi’s dresses are body-con, peplumed, gently shimmering w/metallic glamour; exotically futuristic in their shapes & details.

the sublime of dana lorenz’s latest collection reflects miami’s art deco heritage influenced by artist cecily brown. fenton spring summer 2012 includes, but isn’t limited to, rhinestone duster necklaces finished w/beige feathers, silk fringed chokers & beaded cuffs adorned w/pastel resin charms. “typically fenton. unsurprisingly exceptional.”

you’ve no doubt seen artworks of a woman decked in fur, adorned w/a headpiece, walking her canine w/the drama of a supermodel on the runway. she is one of many ‘deco dramatica’ artworks of artist erté. his vintage works journey viewers into the 1920s/30s when opulence reigned – an era the fashion industry frequently channels for creativity. gucci spring 2012 is inspired by erté’s art as well as the costumes designed for baz luhrmann’s film remake of the great gatsby.erté worked assiduously on his art. it was in 1915 when he began contributing illustrations to harper’s bazaar & within 22 years erté created 250 covers for the magazine.
featured in this post are selected images of his works.
ps: i made note of it here & i’m citing it once more: 2012 is all about 1920 through 1990.
