art deco fashion

im loving the style of steam punk, 18th century clothing with a hint of working class. but nwim going to look at art deco fashion and what that has to offer, maybe il like it more, maybe i wont. il sum up a conclusion once i have researched into it.

so starting from my origin point, the rocketeer then looking at the fashion that comes with it,

this leather jacket is amazing, the shape of it is really cool and the leaher front cover would probably be used to make the wearer more streamline.

from these few pictures i can gather that art deco was all about being streamline and symetrical, not what steampunk is at all.

the clothing style is completely different to steampunk, it just doesnt look right, the women of art deco are too feminine, whereas steampunk women have a scence of adventure and creativity.

i dont think that the traditional american look has steampunk potential, its too clean and flat.

(from this image i cant really see the men of 1920's art deco era wearing a jetpack with their suit, or any kind of helmet or chest piece)

image 66
this mans suit is horrible, i couldnt imagine anything worse to wear, and no matter how many belts or studs you put on that it would always look out of place with a jetpack on it,
maybe womens fashion will be more pleasing with some kind of armour, decorative ofcorse.

im pretty sure that a woman that would wear these types of clohes wouldnt like to be flying round with a single rocket strapped to her back, art deco doesnt have the guts that steampunk does.

this style is really not working for me, i wouldnt be able to justify making a jetpack for a woman like this as the reality of it would be that she wouldnt go near the thing.
this 'flapper' styling isnt really dynamic in the right way for the sort of thing i imagined, i want something a little more industrial, more practical, less style inspired, i think that steam punk has my full attention for this project. art deco only has the rocketeer to offer, and i dont want to make a replica of that. with steam punk something can be changed so easily, so i could collaborate a whole bunch of ideas that i like from many different sources and combine them into one idea, and i guarantee it'll look awesome.
