Walk Like An Egyptian at Beyond Retro

Posted on April 11 2012

Fusing the decadence of 1920s Deco with Egyptomania, hieroglyphic imagery and techno Deco prints, our current in-store displays champion a summery style of pure, uncompromising glamour that captures a retro Egyptian elegance and the adventurous spirit of tomb raiders. Anyone who read our S/S '12 style guides will be familiar with our Walk Like An Egyptian theme, but for the uninitiated, it uses a mix of 1920s-inspired items with '90s garments to give a modern twist to the look, with gold, metal, glitter and embellishments at its foundations. This look can be as theatrical and over-the-top as you like, but its diversity means you can take it in several directions, drawing influence from The Great Gatsby or Tomb Raider, or simply going '90s street-style with denim and Versace-style prints. Click here to see our detailed run-down of the key pieces you need to walk like an Egyptian, otherwise scroll down to take inspiration from our store displays. And don't forget, there are always more pics to be found on Instagram!
