Sometimes you wonder why all of a sudden you're guzzling Dark 'n Stormys at every party you go to, or why all the 20-something baristas are wearing vests and have handlebar mustaches, or why you're curing your own chorizo. It's no accident. We're all are slaves to fashion. Here's the latest food mood -- and all the inspiration you'll need for your next dinner party, from tabletop to powder room.
Top row: Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, in which Owen Wilson's character visits his favorite artistic and literary era; Frank Bruni's ode to the Negroni Sbagliato, (literally a "messed-up Negroni"), made with prosecco and invented in Italy around 1919; a Louise Brooks-inspired fascinator, a hair clip made with white peacock feathers and opalescent beads.
Middle row: An art deco shower curtain covered in period beauty appurtenances; Capitol Skyline, a Streamline Moderne font which contrasts open counters with elongated ascenders and descenders; Claus Porto’s Madrigal Soap, wrapped in a 1920s-inspired wallpaper print.
Bottom row: The Artist, a contemporary French silent film shot entirely in black-and-white; Eileen Gray’s classic Adjustable Table, inspired by Marcel Breuer’s experiments with tubular steel in the 1920s -- perfect for holding cocktails; in Jellies & Their Moulds, a popular Jazz Age dessert gets its due.
