Wallis 1923 collection – beautiful retro styles.

After the  gorgeous 1950s printed Summer dresses, Wallis are again raiding their vast archives to bring vintage chic to the High Street. This time they have looked to two very different eras in terms of style, the 1920s and the 1960s. I absolutely adore the 1920s collection which just screams GLAMOUR.

The 1920s era encapsulates decadent vintage glamour. Wallis has taken inspiration from the Jazz Age for its 1920s evening dress collection. This has been inspired by sketches recovered from the Wallis archives and also by  the Speakeasy bars evoked in Boardwalk Empire.  The gold boardwalk dress evokes the glamour of the period with its rouching, bead work detailing and drop waist hem line, 1920s fan Kate Moss would love this dress! Other favourites include the pink or black tassel dresses with delicate art deco inspired beading and bow neck tie and the grey or pink  firework embellished tunic dresses. The look is completed with the cocoon drop waist coat in cream or black accessorised with a faux fur stole.  These styles are going to continue to be a big story into 2012 with the release of ‘The Great Gatsby’, so invest in the  trend now.

Gold 1923 Beaded Dress £90.00 
Pink 1923 Embellished Dress £99.00 
Black 1923 Tassel Dress £85.00 
Cream 1923 Fur Collar Coat £130.00 


Black 1923 Fur Collar Coat £130.00
