Romain de Tirtoff, commonly known as Erté (from his initials, R.T.) was well known in the modern world of the 1920s for his art deco designs applied to jewelry, film sets, and fashion. Art deco is characterized by lots of geometric shapes and bold patterns. which is what I was really into when I had an 80s outfit kick about a year ago! The modern era, largely in contrast with the punk and grunge years, was mostly about depicting wealth and affluence through artistic works.

Here are a few of my favorites from this Russian-French artist’s costume portfolio:
