On the Radar -- Divine Deco

Carey Mulligan in Gatsby
Baz Luhrmann's reboot of "The Great Gatsby" was set to release this holiday season, getting all the designers in a tizzy to show their very Art Deco best.  Alas, the film's release has been moved to the summer of 2013, but the gorgeous clothes and accessories are everywhere now!

In case you don't know, Art Deco is a design style that started in France in the roaring 1920s, and maintained its popularity through the 1940s.  It's known for its symmetry and rectilinear shapes. We have great "The Skinny" posts about International Art Deco from August of this year: http://blackbirdantiques.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-skinny-international-deco-part-i.html and http://blackbirdantiques.blogspot.com/2012/08/international-deco-part-ii.html .
