The development and decoration of liners from the French Line shows the influence of this style. The appetite for life following the end of World War I blossomed as a great creative flurry in the arts. The Charleston Collection takes another look at this inventive and exciting period of our common history, where the luxury of materials and the simplification of shapes transformed the interiors of amateurs and patrons. Plain and chiseled velvets, refined embroideries, stylized jacquards, tone-on-tone fabrics evoking sharkskin and precious voiles make up an inspired and contemporary reworking of Art Deco. The subtle range of blacks, gray, creams, blues and antique pinks is highlighted with shiny accents of gold and silver, a nostalgic echo of dresses from the Roaring Twenties.
