This spring/summer, designer for curvy women,
Sprinkle pays homage to the Art Deco Revival of the ‘70s.

Nouveau Chic

From the aspirational opulence of The Great Gatsby and Faye Dunaway’s ‘gangster chic’ in Bonnie and Clyde through to the global fashion phenomenon that was BIBA’s ‘Retro Chic’, the Deco-inspired aesthetic heavily influenced 1970s fashion.

This nostalgic vision embraced the “anything goes” ethos of the Roaring Twenties, Hollywood glam of the Thirties and uber-cool minimalism of the Forties. Universal design features included deep V collars, ‘movie star dresses’ of bias-cut jersey, peplums and bold block colours.
