the 1950s: Miami, Ocean Drive
The art deco movement was a time when designers took an objet d’art and created streamlined, angular designs that emphasized curves and lines. This trend was hugely popular in the 1930s and 1940s, but didn’t gain widespread attention until after World War II. Miami’s Ocean Drive is home to some of the most well-known art deco buildings. From 1946 to 1949, the road was home to the first Art Deco hotel in Florida – The Biltmore. The iconic Fuller Building opened in 1937 and has been described as “the archetype of the curvilinear ’50s Miami skyscraper”. Other notable art deco structures on Ocean Drive include The Breakers (1938), The Ritz-Carlton (1929), The Statler Hilton Hotel (1939), and The Fontainebleau Hotel (1932).
the 1960s: Miami Vice and beyond
In the 1960s, Miami was still a down-and-out resort town that had barely made it out of the Depression. But thanks to a few key events, such as the construction of Miami International Airport and the arrival of Hollywood stars such as Humphrey Bogart and Elizabeth Taylor, the city began to turn around. One of the most visible signs of this revival was the emergence of Miami Beach as a top destination for tourists and retirees. And, as one might expect, this new trend in tourism meant more people who were interested in clothing and accessories. So, fashion designers quickly got on board with designing items that would appeal to these new consumers. One such designer was Halston Jean, who is best known for his work on the iconic 1967 TV show Miami Vice. Jean’s designs were decidedly Art Deco, and they perfectly captured the spirit of Miami during the height of its glamour years.
