The Wall Street Journal says that Prada, creator of the costumes in Baz Luhrmann’s forthcoming The Great Gatsby, has incidentally created an entire Gatsby-esque fashion moment. With the film’s looks based off Prada’s own Spring 2011 collection, that may well be true. Here’s a rundown of the rest of the fashion industry collaborations with The Great Gatsby:
Tiffany and Co.: Tiffany opened up its 20′s archives to the filmmakers so they could properly recreate the jewelry of the era to be worn in the film. The jeweler also created a new range of art deco looks celebrating the Jazz Age. And, if you’re in New York, check out the windows at their Fifth Avenue flagship’s windows, entirely re-done as a “World of Gatsby.”
Brooks Brothers: Like Tiffany, Brooks Brothers was involved with the movie itself, allowing the filmmakers access to its archives to re-create the male characters’ looks. The venerable, all-American brand subsequently released The Gatsby Collection, a line offering Twenties-esque suits and ties along with braces and a flat-topped boater hat.
Harrod’s: The British department store is celebrating the film with a Jazz Age-style pop-up bar, open May 9th to 20th. Think art deco decor and cocktails reminiscent of the era.
David’s Bridal: While not debuting a dedicated Roaring Twenties set of wedding gowns, David’s Bridal took general inspiration from the Gatsby remake, deliberately designing their 2013 collection with a Twenties feel.
Last but not least, one of our favorite one-to-one start-ups is about to debut a 1920′s-themed capsule collection, though it has nothing to do with Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming remake. But we’ll have more information for you on that next week…
