The latest (and said to be greatest) adaptation of the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel “The Great Gatsby,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Baz Luhrmann, is due to be released this summer. The film is also claimed to take historical accuracy into account which included the beautiful and stunning costumes provided by fashion company Prada.
Apparently, the head of Prada herself, Miuccia Prada, met with the film’s costume designer, Catherine Martin to present sketches. The pair ended up creating more than 40 innovative outfits for the characters to wear, each and every one handpicked or based off of an existing Prada or Miu Miu outfit from their vast archives.
The outfits in question take the form of shimmering dresses covered from head to toe with jewels such as crystals, diamonds, emeralds, topazes and gold. Fur coats are frequently featured as well, befitting the time period.
The overall hedonism and party loving of the 'Jazz Age' is perfectly represented by the outfits. It is worth noting that Prada has only created the costumes for the female characters such as Carey Mulligan as 'Daisy Buchanan.' The male outfits are being created by designer fashion brand Brooks Brothers.
In conclusion, the much anticipated film will not only keep a watchful eye on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s plot or the acting of its stars, but also the outfits that are said to set the stage for new designs everywhere.
Launch right in time with the theme of the Fitzgerald’s novel with an authentic Prada Gold Leather Tote. This gorgeous "It" bag is crafted in a burst of metallic gold leather and gold tone hardware reflects a powerful fashion statement to match Miuccia Prada’s success story.
One look at the pre-owned Prada leather Tote assures it is functional by its large frame. Any Prada is considered a collectable and yet this one maintains that touch of glitter many women are seeking. Ooze out plenty of pizzazz knowing it is a Prada by its named stamped in gold on its front exterior.
All hardware is gold toned, including the decorative working buckles, handle rings and protective feet on its base.
It is comfortable to carry with its rolled double leather straps and can be set over the shoulder or used as a hand carry.
The used Prada safely secures at the top with a snap closure and securely keeps inside items intact. The exterior is flattering too by its tan fabric striped Prada pattern and logo lining though out. There is ample space for all items and more. The Prada tote features a zipper pocket for those necessities such as a cell and wallet.
The authentic Prada Gold Leather Tote works perfectly for any of the jazz-age appeal that will surely hit the racks with 20's styling after the film's release.
