Gay Young Things

Doing their thing Twenties style, He and She for £5.25 and an exotic piece of Art Nouveau, £6.25. The printed silk scarf on the former, Jean Howell, £3., brown jersey appliqued hat on the latter, Titfers, £3.15.

In spirit it’s Valentino, Jolson, Talkies and Tea Parties and that outrageous Charleston thing with kinky feather boas and twirly beads. In fact it’s dewey-eyed memories of the twenties matched with today’s sense of cheerful frivolity. It’s fun, it’s gay on a lot of today’s bright young people!
