And now, The Great Gatsby Clothing Line

By

17th Apr, 2013

That pink suit! It is by far the most dapper suit I’ve ever seen on a man (Robert Redford helped a little too). And with the highly-anticipated remake about to hit our screens, some fashion people went and did some really clever marketing. Brooks Brothers has teamed up with the men’s costume designer of the new Baz Luhrmann adaptation to unveil a new clothing line inspired by Gatsby style…

… And the oldest men’s clothing chain in the United States was even given the seal of approval by F. Scott Fitzgerald himself,  long before the project was ever conceived.

“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,” says Catherine Martin, who designed the costumes for Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby and Toby Maguire as Nick Carraway in the new film. “It is this most basic and fundamental connection that has made our collaboration so authentic.”

So come on, old sport, let’s get you Gatsby’d up!

And as for the girls (or should I say the flappers)….

Prada is behind the costumes for the new film and these are a sneak peak at the sketches recently unveiled by Miuccia Prada. No word yet on whether Prada will be next to release a Gatsby women’s line…

In the meantime, I came across this shopping guide for channeling Great Gatsby fashion.

And just in case you weren’t already excited enough about this film, let’s just check out this new extended trailer for good measure…
