Sketched: Prada for Gatsby

Here are sketches of Prada’s designs for the upcoming film The Great Gatsby — a collaboration with Baz Luhrmann.

It was designed by the ultimate female of fashion herself, named as such especially with last year’s exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute in New York, which honoured Miuccia Prada’s work alongside fellow Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli (coincidentally with Luhrmann as creative consultant!).

Prada has created amazingly retro looks of shimmering dresses with fringing, tulle-overlaid, crystal-embroidery, and beaded hems (colours including emerald, jade, gold and topaz.. as seen above) – perfect for the period setting of the film.

This sort of old-hollywood glamour is exactly what i’m looking forward to seeing when the film is released next summer – naturally with a bit of Leo Di Caprio on the side – Prada and Luhrmann actually created the suit Di Caprico wore in the 1996 film version of Romeo & Juliet.. seems fitting in a way, no?
