The Candlelight Club
LET'S PARTY like it's THE 1920
Can't wait until New Years Eve? Need an excuse to get that 1920s flapper dress and 1920s jewellery on? Wanting to practice your best Charleston moves? Then we have found the place to be...
Recently we teamed up with the wonderful Candlelight Club. They put on regular parties and events at secret locations in and around London with a 1920s speak easy vibe. Be wined and dined and swept off your feet with entertainment and dancing. This is a fabulous experience for anyone who loves the 1920s, Jazz age or charleston. Make sure you keep yourself updated with their latest events.
Speak easy clubs were hugely popular especially in New York where prohibition (the ban of the selling of alcohol) was being heavily enforced. People felt the need to revel and let their hair down. To forget their worries and woes and dress up and drink up after the proceeding years since the First World War when everything including fun was scarce. In a small way this is mirrored by our own recent pasts.
Below we have put together some alternate 1920s style looks along with our vintage jewellery collections. These embrace the style of the stime which was radically different from what had come before. Shorter hair, shorter hemlines were the rage as well as opulent colours and metallics - a true feeling of design decadence.
So if you are a vintage veteran or a newbie to the world of 1920s style we hope we have picked some things out for you that might suit and get your own design ideas flowing.
If you want to inject a more modern twist on the 1920s look, then this could be just the ticket. We love the long line of this maxi dress by Frock & Frill and the bold geometric design on the bodice is the perfect nod towards the style of the art deco period; which was inspired by the new wave of modern architecture. Think the iconic Empire State Building in New York.
We have added some beautiful Rachel Simpson shoes with our crystal encrusted 1920s jewellery Gatsby Crystal Drop Earrings and an original silver deco compact for that authentic finishing touch.
Want to wear some colour and avoid the obvious black, silver and gold? Then green is your friend. The rich colour and embellishment in this stunning Egyptian style dress from Zapaka UK is perfect for bringing a taste of the orient to the party. At the time there was a deep fascination with the Pharaohs or Egypt and their ornate and expensive attire.
We have teamed this look up with these fabulous Rachel Simpson shoes, our own Egyptian style emerald green deco fan earrings and an original gold and green fan to make sure you keep your cool on the dance floor.
This outfit clearly channels the Great Gatsby look that was so popular during the 1920s. A simple colour palette of off white and gold is sure to make you seen amongst the revellers.
This neat little dress from Jywal is perfect for dancing and we have once again married this up with a pair of Rachel Simpson shoes, a fabulous feather stole from Pretty Eccentric and our drop dead gorgeous crystal and pearl tassel drop earrings; which have a stunning 1920s necklace with tassels to match.
