If you haven’t already been swooning over The Great Gatsby trailer (we won’t ask what has you salivating more- Leo or the fabulous costuming!) here’s a little tidbit to make this upcoming film all the more enticing. Designer of the moment, Miuccia Prada, recently divulged to US Vogue that she reworked 40 dresses from the Prada and Miu Miu archives for the film!
The partnership comes to no surprise, Prada worked with director Baz Luhrmann on his 1996 film Romeo and Juliet, also starring the dashing DiCaprio. Luhrmann also directed a series of short films for the recent Prada and Schiaparelli exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum.
Prada was quoted as saying ” I usually try not to literally reference periods in my work, because that’s not the way I think, but when I worked on the costumes, I realized how many pieces would become very Twenties with a little intervention and another point of view.” We couldn’t agree more! While The Way We Wore has the most amazing selection of authentic 1920′s in the world, we often advise cost-conscious customers going to 1920′s-themed parties to simply rework their contemporary pieces in the flapper style. Any loose fitting tank dress can make the grade when paired with the right accessories and jewelry! Deliver a dose of Deco into your wardrobe on your next night out on the town! Look out for Gatsby July 2013!
