‘The Great Gatsby’-Inspired Clothing Line, Makes You Look Dapper
By Anthea Quay, 16 Apr 2013
Brooks Brothers—which partnered costume designer Catherine Martin for the men’s costumes of much-anticipated Baz Luhrmann film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby—has unveiled a line inspired by the film’s costumes.
The limited edition menswear collection hopes to make its wearers look dapper like the rich and famous protagonist Jay Gatsby—played by Leonardo DiCaprio in the upcoming film—and narrator Nick Carraway (played by Tobey Maguire) with full suits, waistcoats and ties.
The collection is based on archived Brooks Brothers pieces, and “channels the dreamlike world of pristine green lawns and lavish parties depicted in the original 1925 novel”, according to a statement.
“Brooks Brothers is mentioned numerous times in Fitzgerald’s writings as a representation of the ultimate gentlemen’s purveyor of fine clothing to the American man of distinction,” Catherine Martin said in a statement. “It is this most basic and fundamental connection that has made our collaboration so authentic.”
Previously, Miuccia Prada released female costume sketches for the movie—will Prada soon be releasing a line inspired by the film as well?
