an attitude, a point of view, a design perspective

Today's city slant: NEW YORK CITY Fashion week

On the runway last week for Fall 2013 NYC Fashion week, fashion designer Monique Lhullier showcased a girl who is confident, sensual, super dramatic with mixes of Art deco, intense color and structure. 

I really loved the Art deco references. Art Deco visual motifs include geometric shapes, curves, Eqyptian zigzags, motion lines, metallic colors and motifs depicting nature. 

Her sheer and brocade gowns had sophisticated lines in motion and applied plant-like patterns....

Another stunner is the astounding metallic lace-work. (pic on the right). But the showstopper was the nude garment with intricate black geometric beading. ( pic on the left) Wow!!

How can you rock the art deco look in your home design? There are ways to create a modern version of art deco without over doing it! 

Use of geometric architectural elements..

The chevron charcoal rugs by Metro Rugs USA picks up the use of zigzags..

Found some great finds from Dwell Studio:

Love this contemporary tripod table. Its luxe metallic finish and geometric simplicity makes a great accent to any room. The Trompe-L'oeil wallpaper on the left adds visual texture...

The stepped Glynn Linen Natural headboard is pure geometry....

Pattern appeal from the stylized blossoms duvet and sham set....
